Cleveland Heights
February 26-March 15, 2009
Performing Arts Center, Cuyahoga Community College Eastern Campus
4250 Richmond Rd, Highland Hills OH 44122

Written by Keith Reddin
Directed by Brian Zoldessy

Co-produced with Cuyahoga Community College-Eastern Campus Theatre Arts

With staggering relevance to the turbulence of our current economy, CLEVELAND HEIGHTS is a universal story of how families can be affected by the stresses of financial pressures. It is also a familiar Cleveland story of a Jewish family who flees Europe and builds a business in an American city poised for growth, only to see its legacy threatened by the boom and bust cycles of American industry. Above all, Cleveland Heights is a story of hope and a reminder that while economic struggles may challenge us, the strength and security of family and community triumph and endure.
