THEATRE FOR A NEW GENERATION
I NEVER SAW ANOTHER BUTTERFLY
WRITTEN BY Celeste Raspanti
DIRECTED BY Donna Inglima
Over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Theresienstadt (Terezin) Concentration Camp but only about 100 were still alive when it was liberated by the Red Army (Soviets) on May 8, 1945. Through her compassion, the character, Irena Synkova, (based loosely on the artist, Frances Dicker-Brandeis) taught the children to make flowers and butterflies. Before she was taken to Auschwitz, Irena taught Raja Englanderova, one of the 100 survivors, how to carry on her work. By drawing flowers and butterflies the children created symbols of defiance making it possible for them to live on and play while waiting to be transported. This play is about Raja.
