“Kaddish to a Life not Lived.”
After mounting two successful off-Broadway runs of Aeschylus’s Oresteia (2010), translated by Despina Kontaxis and Euripides’s Iphigenia in Tauris (2011), Leonidas Loizides’s acting troupe will return in the Fall of 2012 to present “Kaddish to a Life not Lived.” In this moving monologue, written by Michalis Kokkinaris, translated by Despina Kontaxis, and performed by Eftychia Loizidi, a Jewish woman named Sarah shares her final thoughts before being killed at Auschwitz. In unforgettable words, she mourns for the life that she will never live with the man she loves, the children she will never hold in her arms, and the simple dreams she will never see fulfilled.
