Corrie ten Boom's post-war mission to bring healing and forgiveness to victims of the holocaust reaches a crisis when she comes face to face with the man who turned her and her family in to the Nazi police during the war. What follows is an incredible recounting of the ten Boone's work with the Dutch underground to hide Jews in a hidden room above the family's watch repair shop and their subsequent internment in a concentration camp. Wrestling with her own emotional scars, Corrie must come to terms with her need to forgive in this grim yet beautiful story of faith and survival.

The Hiding Place is an undeniably powerful story. And in the hands of Provision Theater's Artistic Director Tim Gregory, the adaptation boldly and faithfully animates the story. – Chicago Theatre Beat
This play attests to how faith can propel people forward, even during times of pain and suffering, toward inner strength to prevail—a beautiful message and one that all faiths can relate to. - The Epoch Times
This remarkable dramatic show vividly highlights the power of faith, compassion and love. - Chicago Critic
Now Provision Theater artistic director Tim Gregory has adapted and staged the material in a production that is filled with the power of faith in the midst of unimaginable cruelty and privation. - Chicago Tribune
Gregory offers a speedy, sweeping portrait of Ten Boom's contribution, but the play stands blessedly still in such moments, revealing a human indomitability that's worth celebrating. - Time Out Chicago
This is a true story, one that offers the theater audience a chance to learn how ordinary people became extraordinary people during a time in history that we can never forget. - Chicago Stage Standard
