About

It’s 1941 in Cincinnati’s historic West End. Every day, the region grows as African Americans migrate from the Deep South and forge new lives in northern cities. At the same time, German residents face growing hostility as the U.S. teeters on the brink of World War II. Grace, who has fled the South and settled in the West End, houses people of both backgrounds in her row house. When a stranger arrives in the middle of the night in her backyard, Grace must confront the secrets of her past and the irrevocable ripples they have made on her present. This world premiere drama by Cincinnati native Keith Josef Adkins shines a light on a transformative chapter of our city’s history.

ADVISORY: Recommended for ages 13 and up. This historical drama finds characters wrestling with mature topics like racism, war, xenophobia and adult relationships. They discuss these with in-depth wisdom and stoicism, though not without occasional adult language and a few acts of violence.

Prices for The West End start at $35 depending on seat location and performance day, and they are subject to change. Tickets for teens and students are $30, $40 or $50 depending on seat location. Student tickets are just $15 on the day of the show.
