The Theatre Institute at Sage (TIS) presents I Never Saw Another Butterfly by Celese Raspanti, directed by Leigh Strimbeck, February 24-March 5, 2017 in the Schacht Fine Arts Center. Tickets $15.
More than 12,000 children passed through the Terezin Concentration Camp between the years 1942-1944 and only about a hundred were still alive when Terezin was liberated. Raja lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little reason for hope. This play is her story, showing the best and the worst of which the human heart is capable.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
