The Segal Theatre Center to Stage MY MOTHER'S COURAGE Photo The Segal Theatre Center to Stage MY MOTHER'S COURAGE
by Marissa Tomeo - May 1, 2022

Based on the true story of legendary theatre artist George Tabori‚Äôs memoir of his Jewish mother, who miraculously‚ÄĒand in a great act of personal courage‚ÄĒmanaged to escape deportation in 1944. Elsa, a 55-year-old unwavering Hungarian Jew had remained in¬†Budapest to care for her asthmatic sister after her husband had been incarcerated and her sons had left the country. Finally, Else is detained and sent to the rail yard to be deported to Auschwitz‚ÄĒuntil she confronts a Nazi official and manages to obtain her release. Tabori, a collaborator of Brecht and Hitchcock, is best known for¬†Brecht on Brecht¬†(1961) and¬†The Cannibals¬†(1969). In¬†My Mother‚Äôs Courage, Tabori subverted traditional narrative form while deconstructing conventional notions of heroism.
