FATELESSNESS is a unique theatrical reading adapted from the novel of Imre KertÃ©sz, the only Hungarian Nobel Prize-winning author, who is himself a survivor of the Nazi death camps. Performed by Hungarian actor Adam Boncz, the reading will also include music and images from the story’s era.
14-year-old Hungarian Jewish KÃ¶ves Gyuri is taken off a bus while going to work in a brickyard and sent to Buchenwald in the summer of 1944. In the concentration camp, he loses his childhood in finding starvation, selfishness, sickness and death.Â Through the empathy and camaraderie among the other prisoners, Gyuri strives to find happiness and what it really means to be Jewish in the midst of hatred. Upon Gyuri’s return to Budapest a year later, he is left to ponder the impact of his experience alone and deal with his newly given identity.

â€œAminaâ€™s Storiesâ€ is a new translated stage adaptation of the award winning Egyptian short story collection by Hossam Fahr, combining traditional Egyptian storytelling techniques with modern staging and media. This new production will be performed by Egyptian scholar and actress Asmaa Yehia and directed by Egyptian-American director Tracy Cameron Francis. The collection was published in Egypt in 2007 to wide acclaim and speaks not only to the unique relationship of grandmother and grandchild, but also gives us a window into the culture and life of a generation of Egyptians that is quickly disappearing.
VOICES INSIDE/OUT: A Theaterlab sponsored event
April 1st, 7:30 @ SOHO PLAYHOUSE
Tickets: $10-$50 at OvationTix or call 866-811-4111
Theaterlab is proud to support VOICES INSIDE/OUT, a benefit reading of short inmate-authored plays hosted by New York literary legend Jonathan Ames at the historic Off-Broadway venue Soho Playhouse.
The plays were written in the groundbreaking prison playwriting program at Northpoint Training Center in Burgin, Kentucky last summer. All proceeds benefit the playwriting program and residency at Northpoint. Each summer VOICES INSIDE/OUT sends a professional playwright to teach master classes at the prison. Mac Rogers and Holly Hepp-GalvÃ¡n (pictured) were the first two playwrights-in-residence. The 2013 playwright-in-residence will be announced at the event.
The stellar line-up of short plays ranges from comedy (what happens when cookies are banned from the prison’s chowhall) to the personal (one inmate’s 63-month stay in solitary confinement). Come and find out that imagination has no barriers.
