Special Events: The Return of "My Heart In A Suitcase!"
About the play:
Anne Lehmann and her family no longer feel safe in their Berlin home. Life in 1938 Germany is deteriorating quickly for the Lehmanns and all Jews living there. In order to protect their daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Lehmann may have to say goodbye to her forever. Anne must struggle to bring meaning out of despair, to cling to love and hope even in a world that seems filled with hatred and violence. ArtsPower’s gripping and poignant production about Anne and her family’s decision whether or not to send her on the Kindertransport is a tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of a family’s love.
We are excited that the traveling theatrical production "My Heart in a Suitcase" is returning for another tour with the ISJL!
This moving play is especially appropriate for middle school students and their families, but all audiences have enjoyed the show and communities are encouraged to invite their neighbors to join for the performances, as well.
