Protective Custody PRISONER 34042

Drama, Comedy/Drama, Play
The world premiere of a harrowing true story
Protective Custody PRISONER 34042 is a raw new play, written by Charles LaBorde and based on the memoir of well-known Charlotte Holocaust survivor Dr. Susan Cernyak-Spatz.
Protective Custody PRISONER 34042 brings the audience on Susan’s personal experiences as a young woman in Europe during the rise of Nazism and her riveting survival of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps. A universal story of survival and the strength of the human spirit in the most extreme circumstances, is told beautifully by a two-person cast as they bring Susan’s story to life and reflect on the current rise of antisemitism.
The world premiere of Protective Custody PRISONER 34042 will be presented by Three Bone Theatre under the direction of famed Charlotte director Dennis Delamar. The first public reading of the script was presented on December 13, 2018 at the second anniversary celebration of the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice. The evening celebrated all of our Charlotte community’s more than three dozen Holocaust survivors and the successes of the Greenspon Center’s first two years.
Protective Custody PRISONER 34042 contains some adult language and disturbing content related to the Holocaust, recommended for ages 16+
There are six performances of Protective Custody PRISONER 34042- November 1-3 and 7-9 at 8:00pm at the Duke Energy Theatre at Spirit Square. Tickets are $22 in advance and $28 at the door. Groups of 10 or more can purchase tickets for $18 through the Blumenthal Box Office. Discounted pricing is available for students, teachers and ASC Connect with Culture cardholders, see the Three Bone Theatre website for more details.
This project is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

LEAR by William Shakespeare

Drama, Shakespeare, Play
Free Reign Theatre is proud to present LEAR November 14-16 and 21-23 at the Duke Energy Theater at Spirit Square.
A Viking king of Britain who has decided to retire, passing on the responsibilities of leadership to her daughters, but in doing so loses her power and can’t see that she’s been deceived by them until it’s too late.
This gender-bent casting explores the bond between the mother and her children. Themes of familial love, deception, and the quest for reconciliation will launch audiences into one of Shakespeare’s most tragic tales of loss.
Director Heather Bucsh invites you to join the descent into madness. With stage combat choreography by seasoned fight choreographer Charles Holmes, LEAR is sure to grab your focus on family and see it in a very different light.
Tickets can be found at keyword: LEAR.
