Description

Hand2Mouth in partnership with Literary Arts is touring the Oregon Book Award Finalist, Andrea Stolowitz’s moving new play, Berlin Diary, to southern Oregon, this fall. “Engrossing and surprisingly funny,” these free staged readings and seminars will be open to the public.

BERLIN DIARY
Berlin Diary, by Andrea Stolowitz
Finalist for the 2017 Oregon Book Award

The great-grandfather of Oregon Book Award-winning playwright Andrea Stolowitz kept a journal for his descendants after escaping to New York City in 1939 as a German Jew. Following the complicated lure of genealogy, Stolowitz goes back to Berlin to bring the story of her unknown ancestors out of the archives into the light. The record keeps as many secrets as it shares; how do people become verschollen, lost, like library books?

In this complex, contemporary drama about the search for home, fragmented heritage and Jewish diaspora, two performers scintillate between characters and locations at the border of reality and memory and the intersection of national history and private lives.

The performance is 90 minutes, with a brief intermission. Please join us for a short community conversation with the cast, director, & playwright, after the show.

This event is presented by Literary Arts as part of the Oregon Book Awards Author Tour. This event is supported in part by the Oregon Cultural Trust.
