A play with songs of the American South

At the dawn of the Cold War, the early 1950s, a young, brash, Army major, Hamilton Pike, brings famed German rocket scientist and former Hitler employee Wernher Von Braun to Huntsville, Alabama, a cotton town selected to become America's "Rocket City."

But Huntsville is a Jewish community over a century old.

Sparks fly and tempters explode when Amy Lubin, the Jewish fiancaee of local war hero Jed Kessler learns of Von Braun's Nazi past.
