Waiting For Father


Brief synopsis: The semi-autobiographical play is set in the Terezin ghetto in 1944 and at Vassar College and in New York City in 1954. Helena, an idealistic survivor and college student, cannot accept the fact that her father died in Auschwitz. She struggles to make peace with her difficult mother, and is torn between two men, an ambitious filmmaker to whom she cannot bring herself to tell about her past and a charismatic emigre she knew in Terezin. The play contrasts her life in Terezin with her "idyllic" existence at Vassar. Each of the characters who were in Terezin deals with the past differently.
