Corrie ten Boom was the leader of the Dutch Underground during WWII. This play, adapted from her classic memoir, is staged expertly. Sound effects ground readers in space--a dog's yelp, the ticking of 10 watches--and guide emotional response. Each voice comes through clearly, and characters are differentiated from one another--including minor ones. One can even tell each character’s location in space and how he or she is interacting. The writing and directing, however, are more limited. Though this is a story of real heroes whose faith compelled them to hide Jews from the Nazis, they seem flattened, like characters in a melodrama, and, therefore, not quite believable.
