Staged Reading of Ghetto by Joshua Sobol

Set in the Jewish ghetto of Vilna, Lithuania, in 1942, and based on diaries written during the darkest days of the holocaust, Ghetto tells of the unlikely flourishing of a theatre at the very time the Nazis began their policy of mass extermination. The play unfolds as a memory of a former artistic director of the Vilna ghetto theater and explores the life and death decisions of Mr. Gens, head of ghetto; the mixed emotions of Chaja, an actress in the troupe; and the questionable ethics of Weiskopf, a tailor. At times Ghetto is a play within a play and it contains songs that were actually sung in the ghettos.
