Marin Theatre Company is honored to co-produce a staged reading of Jeff Cohen’s The Soap Myth with the Marin Academy on Tuesday, February 21 at 7:00pm starring the incomparable Ed Asner and Tovah Feldshuh. After last year’s successful production at MTC, Marin Academy approached MTC about bringing Mr. Cohen’s story to a wider community, most importantly the Academy’s student body. The organizations are thrilled to join forces in re-staging this work, with playwright Cohen, Mr. Asner and Ms. Feldshuh on board.
Synopsis: Journalist Annie Blumberg is looking for a story, and Holocaust survivor Milton Saltzman has a story to tell: Nazi-produced soap, made from the flesh of their Jewish prisoners. When a group of well-meaning Holocaust scholars say Milton's testimony isn't backed by the facts, it is up to Annie to untangle the reasons why. Jeff Cohen's provocative drama examines where the line between experience and evidence is drawn, and the reasons why history demands to be shared--and sometimes demands to be protected.
Featuring: Ed Asner, Tovah Feldshuh, Donald Corren, and Blair Baker
Tickets: THIS IS A FREE EVENT. Please reserve your tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a limit of two tickets per person.
This production will be held at Marin Academy located at 1600 Mission Avenue, San Rafael, 94901.
