The Warner Brothers lived in Youngstown prior to moving to Hollywood to start their motion picture empire. The magnificent Powers Auditorium/DeYor Performing Arts Center in downtown Youngstown was built as a tribute to brother Sam Warner, the father of the “talking” motion picture.
Ernst Toller’s No More Peace! is a sharp, witty, biting satire with music. Peace has broken out on Earth; in Heaven, Napoleon bets Saint Francis of Assisi that he can prove humanity loves nothing so much as it loves the romance and danger of war. One fake telegram later, chaos ensues! Toller’s comedy explores heady questions about the nature of truth, the impulse to follow the loudest voice, and the dangerous ways in which enemies get defined. No More Peace! remains as funny, startling, and ultimately relevant as it was when it was written in 1935.
