Distant Survivors By June Prager
We are pleased to be releasing a new exciting play script by June Prager. This holocaust drama is based on the poetry of William Heyen, National Book Awards finalist in 2004.
Distant Survivors was conceived and adapted for the stage by director June Prager, based on Holocaust poetry by William Heyen. In this poetic drama, we see the past through the eyes of a German-American who looks back on his ancestral heritage and tries to come to terms with it.
Never Forget! Never Again!
We are experiencing the polarization of America, along with the rise of anti-Semitism across the globe, resulting in an increase of attacks, verbal and physical, against Jews, Muslims, and immigrants. The testimonials for Distant Survivors speak to the power of theatre to deepen our understanding of “the Other” and create a spark towards dialogue and communion.
