This world premiere play draws from the personal diaries of four children effected by genocide. Dawid Sierakowiak, a Jewish boy growing up in Lodz, Poland during the Holocaust. Chanrithy Him, a young Cambodian girl who survived the harsh conditions of the Khmer Rouge. Nadja Halilbegovich who survived the Bosnian Genocide in Sarajevo. Vahram Dadrian, a young Armenian boy who lived during the Armenian genocide who was sent to the wastelands South of Allepo.
Featuring Kathleen Warfel, Marisa Tejeda, Vi Tran and Victor Raider-Wexler reading passages on stage, directly from the diaries of these children. “Four Children” is a reader’s theatre performance with music, projections and a lighting design that shifts the focus onto the emotionally charged words of the children affected by these atrocities.
Four Children is as poignant now as ever, it reminds us that these tragedies aren’t a part of the past. They are widespread and happening today.
Four Children is produced in conjunction with Union Station’s Auschwitz exhibit.
