י״א באייר ה׳תשע״ד (May 11, 2014)
“The Good And The True” is an official application of a theater performance The Good and the True, internationally performed by Svandovo Theater Prague, Czech Republic.
This is the story of two people who went through the same places and experienced similar tragedies – and yet they never met. The pathes of their lifes crossed each other but also passed each other. Athlete Milos Dobry and actress Hana Pravda spent their working lives building suspense, knocking crowds into submission and drawing gasps from their onlookers. Both survived Auschwitz and witnessed murder first hand. Did they both have exceptional strength of character and an iron will or was their survival just ‘good luck’.
A remarkable piece of verbatim theater, ‘The Good and the True’ weaves the true testimonies of two extraordinary people in an English adaptation, translated from the award-winning production ‘Shoah’ and directed by Daniel Hrbek for the Svandovo Theater, Prague.
Actress Isobel Pravda is the granddaughter of survivor Hana Pravda and plays her grandmother for the first time on stage. Actor Saul Reichlin is an award-winning actor whose own one-man play Shalom Alechem has been performed in the West End, Broadway and most major European Countries.
