A STAGED READING OF ALICE SPIGELMAN’S PLAY
A Kind of Reunion
by Alice Spigelman.
Dora loves dancing and Marlene Dietrich. She plans to become a platinum blonde. In her late sixties, she is an irrepressible force of nature, a persona she inhabits with gusto to block out memories of the Holocaust. Her secrets are tightly guarded, especially from her son Stanley, but they threaten to be revealed one night when a policeman knocks on her door to enquire about a local robbery.
Finally confronted with the truth, can Stanley – and Dora – face the devastating tragedy of the past? Or should it remain safely locked away at all cost?
To help us produce professional independent theatre which tells our stories, please consider making a tax-deductible donation. Jewish theatre productions like Rosenbaum’s Rescue are non-profit ventures which rely on private donations and box office revenue to cover our significant expenses.
As the previous PM, Malcolm Turnbull said, “Culture is at the very essence of who we are. Telling stories, describing ourselves, imagining ourselves, dreaming about the selves we’d like to be….that is as human as eating and drinking.”
We appreciate whatever you can contribute so we can continue this work. It will make a difference.
Shalom and Moira Blumenthal Productions thank you for your support.
