About This Show

L.A. Theatre Works presents the world premiere of Exodus: The Shanghai Jews. In this original, commissioned audio drama by playwright Kate McAll, eight Jewish refugees recount their true stories of escaping Nazi persecution to settle in the last place they could ever have imagined — Shanghai, China. There, some 20,000 Jews fleeing Europe established synagogues and businesses, living side-by-side with their new Chinese neighbors in harsh conditions under Japanese occupation. Each of four performances will be recorded live in front of the audience for future radio broadcast, digital download, and online streaming. L.A. Theatre Works’ syndicated radio theater series broadcasts weekly on public radio stations across the US (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM); can be downloaded as a podcast via iTunes, NPR One or wherever you get your podcasts; and can be streamed on demand at latw.org.
