I know we've got a WW2 play to go see, but this one looks very different and worth seeing:) For something lighter come along to Downtown!
In October 1941, the Czech town of Terezin was turned into a ghetto for Jews and renamed Theresienstadt by the occupying Nazi forces. Welcome to Terezin.
But what is Terezin? Is it really the Paradise Ghetto the Nazis claim it to be? A sanctuary where Jewish actors and singers and artists are detained for their own protection during the Second World War? Or is it another concentration camp?
Come and see for yourself, as you join the Danish Red Cross inspector on a tour of this little fortress 30 miles north of Prague and enjoy the Cabaret Gala, featuring stars like Johnny & Jones from Holland, movie star Kurt Gerron who is making a documentary film about the ghetto and the Angel of Terezin herself…
This powerful new play with a strong cabaret-style – specially commissioned for Act One – features some of the actual songs that were created and performed in Terezin.
Show starts at 7.30, meet in the bar at 7 for a drink first. Tickets cost £10. I think this is Yvonne Arnaud's youth theatre group. I'll post details of my ticket in due course.
