First of all, to those of you who are celebrating Easter, I hope it’s joyous celebration. And to those who have recently celebrated Passover, I hope your seders were wonderful!
Well here’s the exciting news! I recently found out that the play I wrote last summer with my son, Jake Epstein, has been accepted into the “In the Beginning Playwrights Festival” with the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company here in Toronto. We will have the opportunity to have the play workshopped for a full day and then we will have a public staged reading with professional actors and director. The play is called Therefore Choose Life and is based on a true story of a man who survives the Auschwitz concentration camp thinking he lost his first wife there. He comes to Canada, remarries, has a son, and twenty-five years later, his first wife resurfaces! Yes, it’s quite a story!
The staged reading of Therefore Choose Life will take place on Tuesday June 14 at the Al Green Theatre (Miles Nadal JCC). It’s free and open to the public. Once I have more details I will be sure to let you all know. So, stay tuned as I begin a new and exciting writing chapter in my life!
