Berlin, 1921. Democracy teeters. Zealots battle in the streets as the Bechsteins, Europe’s famed piano makers, host an elegant soiree. A surprise guest arrives – a combat veteran – unknown and seemingly unremarkable. He unveils powers of seduction, manipulation and demagogy that will soon change the course of history. That this soiree occurred is in the historical record. History does not, however, tell us what happened that night. The stage is set for MARCH. MARCH, an audio drama, is the inaugural podcast presentation from CITIZENARTS, a global leader in creating entertaining, educational presentations that seek to further knowledge and understanding of serious, often complicated current and historical matters.

An intimate soiree that will change the course of history is underway at the Berlin mansion of the Bechsteins, Europe’s famed piano-making family. It is an engagement celebration for a combat war veteran from a distinguished Prussian family and a high-spirited, “modern-thinking” New Yorker.

Tension between the two combat veterans reaches a peak during an imaginary march into the killing fields of war. The veterans share traumatizing memories and together “climb from the trenches,” forming a bond.
