Eastbound Theatre, a division of the Milford Fine Arts Council, announces its third performance of staged readings at the Milford Public Library. “Sidetracks: Remembrance” will feature three plays in remembrance of the Holocaust. Performances will be held on Monday, October 22 at 7 PM. The performance will be free of charge.
In “The Barracks Chief”, a young female prisoner struggles to persuade a camp officer to make an allowance for her ritual. “Ben’s Story” deals with a college student who finds some surprising facts while researching his Grandfather’s escape from Europe. “Chance” follows a therapy session where a young American woman is plagued by nightmares of being separated from her family.
The three pieces were written by Mark Lambeck of Stratford, founder of Temple Players. The program is timed to commemorate Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass on November 9, 1938 - which is said to have set off the full-blown Holocaust that followed.
There will be no tickets or reservations for the Sidetracks performances.
