I’m extremely proud and excited to join the cast of this exceptional new drama by WorkShop playwright, Abigail Somma.  BENEATH THE HUSH, A WHISPER promises to be a first class production marking the 50th anniversary of the passing of Dag Hammarskjöld — Swedish diplomat and Secretary-General of the United Nations, who served from 1953 until his tragic death in a plane crash in 1961.   Opening the WorkShop’s Main Stage 2011-12 season.  Do come…you won’t want to miss it!

 

The Story: The 1950s.  The United Nations.  A British diplomat, assigned to work with Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld  on a project that will change the course of history, faces a personal crisis that tests his idealism and integrity.
