The Festival Stage of Winston-Salem ushers in the holiday season with the Tony Award–winning play The Last Night of Ballyhoo. Written by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry—whose buckling mantel also holds a Pulitzer and Academy Award for his Driving Miss Daisy—the show delves into the social aspirations and ethnic tensions of the Freitags, a wealthy Jewish family living in Georgia on the eve of World War II. Concerned with successfully assimilating into their conservative environs, the family eagerly awaits Ballyhoo, a cotillion sponsored by their exclusive country club. But Joe Farkas, an Eastern European Jew from New York and the office assistant to the Freitag patriarch, injects a discordant note into their holiday celebrations when he challenges the eldest daughter to rethink her relationship with her religion and culture. By turns heartwarming and thought provoking, The Last Night of Ballyhoo shows audiences how discrimination can just as easily exist in one’s own community as it can among people of different backgrounds.
