This event is in the past.

Phillip and Sylvia Gellburg are a Jewish married couple living in New York in the last days of November 1938. Phillip works at a Wall Street bank, where he works on foreclosing. Sylvia suddenly becomes partially paralysed from the waist down after reading about the events of Kristallnacht, when the Nazis attacked the Jews in Germany. Dr. Harry Hyman is contacted by Phillip to try to help Sylvia recover. He believes that her paralysis is psychosomatic, and he begins to treat her according to his diagnosis. Throughout the play, he learns more about the problems that Sylvia is having in her personal life, particularly in her marriage. Broken Glass is one of Arthur Miller's later, award winning plays, and is a rich and deeply-felt drama. It is fitting that it is to be performed during the author's centenary year.
