Talk | Holocaust Remembrance Day: One Woman's Story (virtual)


Marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Elizabeth Bellak, with her daughter Alexandra, presents the journal of her sister, Renia Spiegel, who was a Jewish teenager in southeastern Poland when she began writing her diary, months before the advent of World War II. By the time she was executed by Nazi soldiers, Spiegel had chronicled life under a totalitarian regime. Her journal, hidden in a safe deposit box in New York City for decades, has been described as a counterpart to Anne Frank's diary, a valuable historical document and a poignant coming-of-age story.

Theater | YES! Reflections of Molly Bloom: a veering, vivid, ribald monologue expertly performed - The NYTimes (virtual)


It is Ireland in the early hours of June 17th, 1904. Molly Bloom’s husband–the wandering philandering Leopold “Poldy” Bloom–has just come home & fallen asleep in their Dublin row house. Molly–a daughter, a mother, a lover and a long-suffering wife–patrols the pathways of her wild and leaping consciousness. She is lustful. Scared. Exuberant. Heartbreakingly lonely. Vivaciously reckless. And profoundly funny. With an empty nest, an unfulfilling affair and a marriage long past its prime, Molly must find a way back to the rock-bed of love that she and Bloom once shared. Her unsentimental stream of consciousness is a song of songs that reaches backwards and forwards across the centuries. Written one hundred years ago, Joyce’s words seem carved not just for today, but tomorrow too. Time ticks within time, dreams are upended, and life is thrown off balance. Molly seeks to reanimate love and ends up discovering herself. Dublin becomes Gibraltar, age becomes youth and a small room in Dublin becomes the world. From the novel Ulysses by James Joyce Adapted by Aedín Moloney & Colum McCann Music by Paddy Moloney Performed by Aedín Moloney

Theater | Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski, with Oscar Nominee David Strathairn (virtual)


Honoring International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

A courier for the Polish Underground, Karski volunteered at great risk to carry eyewitness reports of the destruction of the Jewish people of Poland to the Free World. From the underground tracks of Polish resistance to the despair of the Warsaw Ghetto and Nazi camps, to the Oval Office, this work explores and celebrates the complex life and legacy of a witness, spy, diplomat, hero, and Georgetown University Professor.

Discussion | Herself (2020): Director and Star in Conversation (virtual)


Single mother Sandra (Clare Dunne) escapes her abusive partner with her two young children, only to find herself trapped in temporary accommodation. After months of struggling, she draws inspiration from one of her daughter’s bedtime stories and hits upon the idea of self-building an affordable home. She finds an architect who provides her with plans and is offered land by Peggy (Harriet Walter), a woman she cleans for. Aido (Conleth Hill), a building contractor, appears willing to help, too. But as her past rears its head in the form of Gary (Ian Lloyd Anderson), her possessive ex, and as bureaucrats fight back against her independent spirit, will Sandra be able to rebuild her life from the ground up? Join the conversation with director Phyllida Lloyd and star/co-writer Clare Dunne. Moderated by Chief Film Critic for Variety Peter Debruge.
