DISTANT SURVIVORS: Never Forget! Never Again! Blue Moon Plays Announces the Publication of its Newest Release - "Distant Survivors."

A poetic drama by June Prager, based on the Holocaust poetry of William Heyen, "Distant Survivors" confronts that hatred of “the Other” that incited and fueled the Holocaust. Ms. Prager creates a world where memories of survivors, both Holocaust victims and persecutors, reawaken and reveal themselves to a man seeking to understand a past where evil destroyed the lives of millions. Today, we are experiencing the polarization of America, and across the globe, with an increase of attacks against Jews, Muslims, and immigrants.

March 5, 2017 (FPRC) -- The play reminds us how quickly racial hatred can spread – like wildfire – and ignite acts of violence. Three months after this past November’s election, the Southern Poverty Law Center has recorded 1,372 bias incidents, including anonymous bomb threats being called in to Jewish community centers in 24 states, and desecration of Jewish cemeteries. In a sharply worded statement to President Trump, Steve Goldstein, Executive Director of the Anne Frank Center, said: “It doesn’t matter whether you think you are personally responsible for the continued acts of hate against Jews, including today’s latest bomb threats. Rightly or wrongly, the most vicious anti-Semites in America are looking at you and your administration as a nationalistic movement granting them permission to attack Jews, Jewish institutions and sacred Jewish sites.”

"Distant Survivors" garnered glowing testimonials from audience members. Pastor Daniel B. Ward of St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church responded by saying that “The gift of remembering through this remarkable play becomes a powerful antibiotic against the plague of anti-Semitism of yesteryear, aware that it still resides among us today.” The testimonials speak to the power of theatre to deepen our understanding of others and create dialogue and communion.

In light of current events, significant for Jews and non-Jews alike, it is especially important to reach a wider audience who will speak out against ethnic hatred in our communities. Distant Survivors is now available to theatre producers, literary agents, and booking agencies for production in the U.S. and abroad.
