The line between good and evil rarely stands still as betrayal, murder, and “who am I”
Written and Directed by MARC WEINER
MAY 11 - MAY 28, 2023 AT THE 36TH STREET THEATRE
After David, a senior at Columbia University, saves Nina from serious injury at an anti-war demonstration in 1968, an unraveling of human and familiar connection is discovered. Through a series of vignettes that travel back in time to 1942, we see their family in the Warsaw ghetto struggling to escape and survive the war. It was a time that people would do anything to protect their true identities-ensuring their lineage remains intact–and that the Jewish people were able to persevere. David and Nina are drawn into their family’s history and discover they are connected beyond a common mission of peace.
The production stars Emily Blake (Notes on A Life) as Sarah, Sean Edward Evans (Benjamin Cohen, The Underpants - Company Theatre Group (Nominated for a Broadway World Regional Award)) as Joseph Reszki, Mark Friedlander (Romeo, Romeo and Juliet - Connecticut Free Shakespeare) as Peter, Michael Gnat (Al in the Drama Desk-nominated The Navigator) as Jakob Epstein, Jon Lonoff (Poor of New York) as Victor, Michael Lopetrone (Death Of A Salesman - Flint Repertory Theatre) as David, and Eileen Sugameli (The Skin of Our Teeth - Theatre for a New Audience OBIE Award Winning Production) as Nina.
