Synopsis: Play script. A fictional dramatization set in World War II Germany based on the true story of Sophie Scholl and the resistance group known as The White Rose. Cast of 18 men, 6 women. Representational set. Approx. running time: 90 min.

In Germany, 1943, a group of university students, appalled at the truth which is coming to light about the Nazi Party, start a resistance group aimed at bringing down Hitler and the Nazi regime. It is a true story of breathtaking courage, selflessness, and utter faith in what is right. The efforts of The White Rose, referred to once as "quite possibly the single most heroic feat in European history", are an inspiring tribute to the goodness of humanity shining even in the darkest moments of history.

Over the past ten years Jim has been deeply involved in writing for children s theater. He has been commissioned by various theater for youth around the country for new works, but is most closely associated with First Stage Milwaukee where he has premiered eight of his twelve plays for young audiences and their families.
