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.
Dates will be April 22-27 and May 6-12, 2019. Stay tuned for more information!
What folks are saying about this show:
"First, thank you for helping to bring the performance to Texas! The cast was absolutely fantastic!!! We were amazed how four people silenced the auditorium with their performances. The play was powerful and the actors made you feel their emotions. In fact, we had a few people actually in tears. It was that amazing. I hope that in the future, we might be able to introduce this performance to middle/high school students.” - Audience Member/Program Volunteer in Corpus Christi, TX
