Four Generations [ארבעה דורות]

The story of four generations of four families in Berlin, from 1815 to 1933. Three families are Jewish and the fourth is Christian. The play focuses on keeping Jewish religious tradition on the one hand, and assimilation on the other.

I Never Saw Another Butterfly

This devised play takes a retrospective look at the journey to the genocide through the eyes of the children of Theresienstadt. From the humiliations on the streets of German cities, the synagogue burnings and the Einsatzgruppen to the wide and varied forms of resistance that people found and took in response to the devastating events of this period. Jewish festivals and cultural values are embedded in the children’s story, which ends on their arrival at Auschwitz in 1944.
