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.
