The Last Rat of Theresienstadt Nov 13-14
Posted November 9, 2019
Sofia Brünn, a Weimar cabaret star from 1930s Berlin finds herself transplanted to Theresienstadt, a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. During her time in the camp, she forges an unlikely friendship with Pavel, a rat. Despite the lack of food that has driven away the rest of his kind, Pavel remains with her out of his love for her and her art.

This show is about resistance and hope and the need to fill the soul as well as the body. A dark comedy, The Last Rat of Theresienstadt is a low tech, multi-media play with music, puppetry, and live-action projections that incorporates original songs, artwork, poetry and humor created by prisoners in Theresienstadt.
