Primal Forces Presents BLONDE POISON An Extraordinary True Story of a Life in Nazi Germany
Primal Forces is proud to present Blonde Poison, based on the true story of Stella Kubler who, in present day London, reflects on her harrowing days as a young Jewish girl in Nazi Germany. The stunning play by Gail Louw is directed by Keith Garsson, and stars four-time Carbonell Award-winner Lourelene Snedeker. Tickets are available at www.primalforces.com or call 866-811-4111.
"Lourelene is a phenomenally gifted actor who brings a deeply conflicted and complex character to life," said director Keith Garsson. "As the audience learns about Stella's past, will they see her as a victim or were her misdeeds as monstrous as those who imprisoned her?"
Decades after the war, Stella agrees to be interviewed by her childhood friend Peter Wyden, who had a schoolyard crush on her in his youth and is now a prominent journalist. This reunion may be her last chance for redemption. Can she ever be released from her past? Louw's powerful play examines the motivation of an ordinary person who makes extraordinary choices. Winner of an Argus Angel Award for artistic excellence at the Brighton Festival and Fringe 2012, named Highly Recommended at the Camden Fringe 2013 and Best of San Francisco Fringe 2016, the play is a compelling and artful exploration of the darkest corners of a human heart.
