As we watch the news from Italy with aching hearts, I could not help but think of the last play we presented, Dark Passage, by Rosemary Frisino Toohey. As many of you know, it is about the internment of Italian Americans during World War II. I am attaching an audio clip of the final scene of Act One, when Mario (played by Larry Dahlke), a sardine fisherman, is saying goodbye to his wife Antonia (played by Joy Pappas) before he is sent off to camp. It seems to be the right message for the moment. As Antonia reminds her husband, there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
