About this show

World Premiere!  Based on the true story of Etty Hillesum, a young Jewish writer, this extraordinary new play chronicles Etty's remarkable journey into the emerging science of psychology just as WWII engulfs her native Amsterdam. Using excerpts from Etty's own diaries, an ensemble of seven actors brings to life Etty's secret history of musical evenings, therapeutic wrestling matches, black-market strawberries, and midnight prayers that inspired her amazing transformation during one of the darkest hours in history.
