        Elisabeth's Book

Elisabeth's Book

A Holocaust artifact is the inspiration for this play based on the life of a Hungarian survivor of forced labor camps in 1944. Told mostly through movement, with minimal text, the story follows three women from prosperous, book-loving bourgeoisie to becoming displaced persons adrift in post-war Europe. The "book" itself, a tiny cloth book with bits of grenade scrap in the form of domestic symbols sewn in, was made in the camps by one of the women for her friend. Elisabeth kept the book for 70 years until her death in Toronto in 2016. It took her 40 years to be able to write about her experience. 3 scenes, no intermission. With music by Gina Leishman, Joan Schirle, and traditional Jewish songs.

Collaboratively devised by Joan Schirle, Alain Schons, Ruxy Cantir, Laura Munoz
