A Talk-Back with Playwright Wendy Kout and production team will follow
Crafted from the actual words and experiences of ten Rochester-based Holocaust survivors, CenterStage Theatre and the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester commissioned this new play to put a human face on this important time in history. A cautionary tale on the risks of normalized hate, this play ensures that the voices of Rochester survivors will never be silenced.
Survivors weaves the shocking and inspirational stories of Eva Abrams, Erich Arndt, Arthur Herz, Ellen Lewinsky, Rosemarie Molser, Henry Silberstern, Helen Przysuskier,
Evie Schuerman, Kurt Weinbach and Carl Voldman.
The play will be presented at the JCC before launching an area-wide tour to schools and community groups.
Proceeds will support the further development of Survivors and CenterStage/TYKEs Theatre education outreach initiatives.
Recommended for ages 13 thru adult
