AUDITIONS February 23 & 24, 2024

I Never Saw Another Butterfly

A beautiful and moving one-act play based on the poetry created in a concentration camp by the Jewish children of Prague. Over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, and only a hundred were still alive when Terezin was liberated at the end of the war. One of the survivors, Raja, tells the story of the children. It’s her play and it’s theirs.

There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to live on while waiting to be transported.
