I Was A Stranger Too

I Was A Stranger Too tells the story of a Jewish woman in America today who is propelled by the memory of her mother’s rescue from the Holocaust to help people fleeing persecution. As she tries to navigate and understand the complexities of the system, she encounters asylum seekers and asylum helpers along the way. The play is a finalist for the Theatre J Trish Vradenburg Jewish Play Prize and for the Jewish Plays Project 2022. Research was funded by Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council.
