Winner of the 1996 Kennedy Center/Fourth Freedom Forum Playwriting Award, Front is set in England during the Blitz.  A number of struggling individuals and families come to terms with war and the horrors and tragedies it provides. This includes Judith, a proud matriarch, who works in a factory that makes bomb detonators, her missing husband, Frank, and their two children, Sheila and John, who are forced to grow up much too quickly. A number of other war-torn individuals are also profiled, each butting heads with the raging war.  A poignant account of female perseverance, Front is appropriate for all mature audiences.
