Essentially a morality play, Quiet in the Land is a finely drawn portrait of an Old-Order Amish community held together and yet set apart by its strict beliefs and traditions. When a non-Amish friend is wounded in the war, Yock must decide if he will reject his heritage, his family, his community, and even the girl he loves, in order to enlist in the army and defend his country. Infused with warmth and wonderful characters, this play explores the great human dilemma of how to understand the meaning and demands of love and faith in a world torn apart by hatred.
