Phillip Gellburg is an executive and the only Jew among the WASPs at a very Establishment Wall Street bank. His wife, Sylvia, is obsessed with news of Nazi Germany. After seeing a photo of old Jewish men forced to scrub the sidewalk with toothbrushes, she becomes mysteriously paralyzed in the legs. The only one who perceives Sylvia's fears and longings is Dr. Hyman - a man as passionate and empathetic as Phillip is repressed. Miller's resonant and intriguing new play is about sexual awakening, the consequences of denial, and the toll that social injustice takes on an individual. This is an extraordinarily powerful drama from America's foremost playwright.
