“This is the town of Ware. W.A.R.E. Streets, three. Houses, fifteen. Farms, ten. Churches, four. A garage, sawmill and a store. Not much more. Down in town a boy waits…”
A play for all ages, The Edge of Peace tells the touching story of Buddy, a young boy struggling to make sense of a world at war.
The Edge of Peace, the final play in Suzan Zeder’s acclaimed trilogy, is produced in partnership with Seattle Children’s Theatre (SCT). SCT Artistic Director Linda Hartzell describes Zeder’s masterpiece as “a drama, mystery and adventure rolled into one. Audiences will fall in love with these characters and their stories. The play really demonstrates the interdependence of community members during times of crisis.”
One of the nation’s leading playwrights for family audiences, Suzan Zeder’s plays have been performed in all fifty states, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, Australia, Germany, Israel and New Zealand. She is a professor at The University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance.
Age Recommendation: Ages 10 and up – Soldiers returning from war and families suffering while their loved ones are away are timely topics. Implications of war and the intersection of multiple stories lines may be difficult for children under 10 years of age.
