When Holocaust survivor Ulah Lippmann (Julia Blake) hears of a terrorist attack in her Melbourne neighborhood, she has no idea she’ll soon find herself held hostage by a Muslim radical on the run after the bombing. Desperately wounded, Sadiq Mohammed sees Ulah’s flat as a place to hide while he plans his next move. And so begins a terrifying ordeal that will force Ulah and Sadiq to confront their own pasts – at times driven by mutual need; at times by unexpected revelations; at times by events outside the apartment.

It was the era of a toe-stomping Chattanooga Choo Choo — a time when today’s World War II veterans were young soldiers fighting a major way. To honor these brave men and women, the B&O Railroad Museum is hosting a Swing Dance inside its 1884 Roundhouse. Bumper Jacksons, recognized as the region’s “Best Traditional Folk Band” at the Washington Area Music Awards last year, performs live jazzy, rowdy American street music of pleasure and celebration, freedom, and a good old-fashioned dance party. Amateurs receive a 30-minute dance lesson beginning at 7pm. A portion of the proceeds benefit A Taste of Home, apolitical and non-partisan organization that provides acts of kindness for Maryland’s sons and daughters in harm’s way. Light food & beverage including beer and wine concessions provided by Crown Foods Service. Costume or period dress encouraged but not required.
In-advance: $20 for B&O Members, $25 for the General Public, $45 for Couples
