Tom Cat Cohen Productions, Inc. presents a new adaptation of Geraldine Teagarden and Sharon Talbot’s I Never Saw Another Butterfly. In 1942, 12-year-old Raja Englanderova was sent to Terezin, a Czechoslovakian ghetto that was in truth a way station for Jewish prisoners bound for Auschwitz. There, in addition to the fear and hopelessness threatening to swallow her, she also finds Irena Synkova, a teacher who is secretly conducting art and writing classes among the children in the camp. This is a powerful story about the strength of hope, for audiences of every age and faith.
