To Steal a March on God

A play based on the author's 1976 interviews with Marek Edelman, the last living survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising as well as on his 1945 memoir. The drama is structured in five sections, the opening and closing are set at a ceremony celebrating the anniversary of the famous ghetto revolt. The three other sections are based on the interviews with the survivor, now a doctor, and use flashbacks to recount the actions of the twenty-four-year-old resistance fighter.
