"Carson Kreitzer's "Parachute Silk" (directed by Leda Hoffmann) takes us back to World War II, as two young women (Eva Balistrieri and Anders) await the return of their beaus.
Like their men, they've been changed forever by the war, and the question they face is one that confronts us all: whether there's ever enough fabric to stitch together a life - and justify the leap of faith we call love."
-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"a remarkably touching story of a couple of World War II-era women who will marry their future husbands in dresses made of silk from some rather significant parachutes. Starring in crushingly endearing performances."
