Lacroute Playwright-in-Residence and three-time Oregon Book Award winning playwright Andrea Stolowitz’s The Berlin Diaries, the autobiographical story of Andrea’s quest to untangle her family’s history using her German-Jewish great-grandfather’s diary, to be released to ART audiences prior to broader distribution. The audio drama is directed by Artistic Director Dámaso Rodríguez.
Andrea Stolowitz’s great-grandfather kept a journal for his descendants after escaping to New York City in 1939 as a German Jew. Following the complicated lure of genealogy, Stolowitz goes back to Berlin to bring the story of her unknown ancestors out of the archives into the light. The record keeps as many secrets as it shares. How do people become vershollen, lost, like library books?
This production contains a fully immersive sound design and original composition.
Warning: This production contains loud gunfire and sirens.
