LACONIA — For the eighth year in a row, The Winni Players, in conjunction with Temple B'Nai Israel in Laconia, will be presenting a special presentation of a Holocaust themed play to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom Hashoah. On Saturday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 19 at 2 p.m. the Players, will be presenting Black Fear, an original script frequent Winni Players volunteer, Charles Fray.
The play has recently been chosen for one of this year's "Charles A. Hildebrandt Holocaust and Genocide Studies Award". On April 15, 1945, two women, Shimza Wesh and Leah Goldhirsch, one a Gypsy and the other Jewish, are shoved together, fellow inmates in Flossenburg Concentration Camp in the Upper Palatinate region of Bavaria close to the border with Czechoslovakia. As World War II rages, burns and stumbles to a destructive end, Shimza and Leah find in and for each other that which they feared lost forever; friendship and unexpected love.
As Shimza's and Leah's lives become inextricably bound together, they both become entangled with the life of a young German man. Those bindings, those entanglements, those connections forged in a five day chaotic crucible as discipline in the camp dissolves and becomes sporadic, and the Thousand Year Reich implodes, are still shaping lives on a snowy April Saturday in a small Vermont town fifty seven years later when Professor Franklin Cartwright, his niece Meghan and Franklin's granddaughter Gretchen share in the unraveling of a secret.
Like most of the past seven presentations for Holocaust Remembrance, last year's The Brundibar Project being an exception, the play will be performed as a staged reading meaning that the actors will have minimal blocking and will hold their scripts in hand. Though not a full-scale production, these staged readings are always moving and thought-provoking.
The cast will be made up of many Winni Players regulars including: Charles Fray, John Piquado, Nick Resca, Jennifer Summers, Johanna Halperin, Katie Dunn, Tamara McGonagle, Matt McGonagle, Janney Halperin, Barbara Webb, and Jim Rogato.
Continuing with the format of prior years, immediately following the performances a discussion between the performers and audience will take place to allow people to share ideas and feelings about what they've just witnessed. Past discussions have had community members sharing personal stories and tears as well as expressing thoughts on anti-Semitism and the lingering effects of the Holocaust on Jews today.
Tickets are $7 per person and are available in advance at 279-0333 or by visiting winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org.
