AND A CHILD SHALL LEAD
NATIONAL JEWISH THEATER FOUNDATION REMEMBRANCE READINGS
Directed By Joey Landwehr
Join us for our first collaboration with the National Jewish Theater Foundation. This play will be performed as a reading on November 12 in remembrance of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass). The evening will also feature an award ceremony for NJTF honorees from the La Jolla Playhouse and The Old Globe.
About The Play: This is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the "Jewish city" established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty -- playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper -- all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war. Read a preview online.
