Staged Reading: Ghetto

by Joshua Sobol

Directed by Jennifer Decker

Thursday, May 2 | 7:30 PM

Tickets: Member $15 | Public $21

Set in the Jewish ghetto of Vilna, Lithuania, in 1942, and based on diaries written during the darkest days of the holocaust, Ghetto tells of the unlikely flourishing of a theatre at the very time the Nazis began their policy of mass extermination. The play unfolds as a memory of a former artistic director of the Vilna ghetto theater and explores the life and death decisions of Mr. Gens, head of ghetto; the mixed emotions of Chaja, an actress in the troupe; and the questionable ethics of Weiskopf, a tailor. At times Ghetto is a play within a play and it contains songs that were actually sung in the ghettos.
