ALGONA

After being captured by Americans during WWII,

a group of young foot soldiers from the German army are transported to a P.O.W. Camp in Algona, Iowa where they are recruited to join a Drama Club led by Sgt. Hank Cole. Inspired by actual events, Calamity West’s newest play explores the traumas of war, the cycle of violence perpetuated by global imperialism, and the magic of theater.
