“Under the Skin” at Women and War Festival 2017
We are very excited to announce that we will be presenting a work-in-progress production of Yonatan Calderon’s Under the Skin at So&So Arts Club’s Women and War Festival in July.
Under The Skin tells the story of the love affair between the Nazi officer Anneliese Kohlmann and one of her female Jewish prisoners in Neuengamme concentration camp. The play is based on Kohlmann’s Belsen trial protocol, and also on Holocaust survivors’ testimonies.
The show, written by Israeli playwright Yonatan Calderon, had a successful Israeli production which ran for over two years in the Gay Centre Theatre in Israel. This work-in-progress presentation will be its UK debut.
The play tells one of the lesser-known stories of the Holocaust. The piece is highly relevant today as it highlights characters from both the Jewish and the Gay Communities and explores themes of loyalty and betrayal in the face of war and destruction.
Performances will run from the 11th to the 16th of July. You can buy your tickets here.
