Polonsky Shakespeare Center, 262 Ashland Place, Brooklyn, NY

In an acclaimed solo performance, Oscar nominee and Emmy-winner David Strathairn makes his Theater For A New Audience debut portraying the Polish World War II hero and Holocaust witness Jan Karski, who risked his life to carry his report of the Warsaw ghetto from war-torn Poland to the Allied Nations and the Oval Office only to be disbelieved. Strathairn captures the remarkable life of this self-described “insignificant, little man” and his story of moral courage and individual responsibility.

David Strathairn and members of the creative team of Remember This will participate in 20-minute post-show talkbacks at select performances. In addition, Theatre for a New Audience will offer post-performance talks with Bianca Vivion Brooks and other moderators. Check the calendar for details.
