Stephanie Satie's SILENT WITNESSES to Play United Solo Festival, 11/2
SILENT WITNESSES, a solo play written, and performed by Stephanie Satie based on interviews and conversations with Child Survivors of the Holocaust, will play United Solo Festival at Theatre Row on November 2 at 2. p.m.
In SILENT WITNESSES, their stories are unique in the realm of Holocaust narratives. They were kids, hidden, off the radar of everyone - of other survivors and the world. Their memories were shaped through a child's lens, yet infused with the wisdom of the adults they've become.
Silent Witnesses will have a 6-week run in Los Angeles just before coming to the United Solo Festival.
SILENT WITNESSES is Stephanie Satie's third solo play, following the critically acclaimed Refugees (published by Samuel French and Best in Fringe in Edinburgh) andComing to America - Transformations. With a voracious appetite for stories, coupled with her interest in the way historical events- cataclysmic events-impact personal lives, her uplifting new theatre piece is based on interviews and conversations with Child Survivors of the Holocaust.
Ms. Satie joins director Anita Khanzadian for their third collaboration. Previously, they worked together on Refugees and Coming to America: Transformations.
