In 1935, a young couple purchases a house from a Jewish family in Dresden, Germany. The play follows the lives of the house's residents, who must grapple with their own identity while experiencing the reverberations created by 60 years of German history. As the house is passed from owner to owner, and generation to generation, the secrets buried in the garden and within the walls reveal themselves.

The Stone Production Team features David R. Gammons (scenographer), Jeff Adelberg (light design), Nastya Bugaeva (costume design), Jakov Jakoulov (original score), Vladimir Gusev (video designer) and an eight-member cast including Jenya Brodskaia (Conductor #1), Misha Tyutyunik (Conductor #2), Olga Sokolova (Hannah), Viktoriya Kovalenko (Heidrun), Darya Denisova (Witha), Rimma Gluzman (Mieze), Anna Kovalenko (Stefanie), and David Gamarnik (Wolfgang).

Arlekin Players Theatre was created in Boston in 2009 and has since toured to New York, Chicago, and Hartford, as well as to several international festivals. Arlekin takes strong pride in their emphasis on self-identity; they are a company of immigrants performing works that play on the ideas of cross-culture, home, and traditions, challenging the idea of nationality, and finding common themes that unite us all. Performances are in Russian, with simultaneous translation into English. The company makes its home in Needham, MA. For more information, visit www.arlekinplayers.com.
