THE SOAP MYTH STARRING ED ASNER

Directed by PAM BERLIN
Starring ED ASNER
Featuring JOHANNA DAY, BLAIR BAKER, and NED EISENBERG

Presented in association with Jewish Federation of Greater New Bedford and Burke Cohen Entertainment.

More than a half century after WWII, at the desperate urging of a passionate survivor (played by Ed Asner), a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story. Against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity, the critically-acclaimed The Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen questions who has the right to write history – those people who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort its very existence? And what is our responsibility once we know the truth?

The Soap Myth stars Emmy Award-winning Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Up) and features Tony & Drama Desk Award-Nominee Johanna Day, Blair Baker, and Ned Eisenberg in a staged reading. This production was produced Off Broadway at the Roundabout Theater in 2012 by the National Jewish Theater Foundation. A film of that production was broadcast nationally on PBS and is in the permanent collection of the Britain’s Digital Theatre.

The performance will be followed by a moderated Q&A Session that includes playwright Jeff Cohen.

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day – January 27
