Blackbox Theatre Presenting 'My Brother's Gift' In Moline This Weekend
This production will be taped and air on WQPT in November 2023.
“One of the challenges in directing this play for stage knowing that it will be taped for television is the addition of visual elements in the studio that would not be possible on stage,” said Adams. However, key to both versions is the artwork of Heinz.
Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss began speaking of her experiences later in life. Her father and brother died only weeks before liberation, while Eva and her mother survived returning to Amsterdam. Schloss and her mother renewed their friendship with Otto Frank and in November 1953, Schloss’s mother Elfrieda married him.
My Brother’s Gift opens September 2 and runs through the 11th. Tickets are available at theblackboxtheatre.com.
