Taste of Limmud Chicago at the Theatre Series: The Last Act of Lilka Kadison

August 4th, 2011 Comments off

Limmud Chicago invites you to the Theatre!  Join Limmud Chicago for the next production in our Taste of Limmud at the Theatre Series:

Chicago Limmudniks will have access to specially priced tickets to see The Last Act of Lilka Kadison at Lookingglass Theatre on Sunday August 21 at 3pm, followed by a “Limmud-y” learning-based post-show conversation.  This is the last day of the extended run & your last chance to see the show!

About this acclaimed new production:  At age seventeen, Lilka Kadison flees Poland on the eve of World War II.  Seventy years later in America, she’s spending her afternoon hassling her son, wrestling her caregiver, and arguing with a ghost who keeps rearranging her furniture…and her memories.  Join Lookingglass on this journey about the power of story, humor, and grace in the face of oblivion.

We hope you will join David Bier who has ten years’ experience working with Holocaust survivors, and Andrew White, Lookingglass’ Artistic Director, for a post-show conversation about “Survival, Memories, and Storytelling.”

Use the code LIMMUD when you buy your tickets on-line for the performance on Sunday, August 21 at 3pm for a significant reduction on your ticket price!

We are looking forward to another production in our Taste of Limmud at the Theatre Series at Piven Theatre in November when Chicago Limmudnikim will have the opportunity see Cities of Light and experience the stories of the European Jewish cabaret,  with writer and  performer Rebecca Joy Fletcher.
