CBS Golgotha Fundraiser

  • Golgotha is a monodrama by Shmuel Refael, and centers on Albert Salvado, a Holocaust survivor from Thessalonica who, in the winter of 1943, was sent with his wife and two daughters to Auschwitz. Albert was forced to serve as a sonderkommando while his wife and daughters were killed. For 60 years he has lived with memories of his loss and experiences. On the eve of having the Greek Jews from Thessalonica honored at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, he suffers yet another blow. Albert tells his story in a one-act play lasting about an hour.

    The play was read in the Mizzou New Play Series in 2019, through the efforts and initiative of David Crespy. We have now staged it is as the play it was written to be. It stars Aaron Krawitz, and features the live musical accompaniment of MU violin Professor Julie Rosenfeld, and Lydia Redding. Their playing - before, during, and after the play - adds greatly to the dramatic power of this story. Al Dabiri directs, and production manager Heather Hatton designed the lights and sound. Talking Horse is an ideal venue for this show.

    The CBS fundraising performance of this show will take place on Wednesday, August 18th, 2021 at the Talking Horse Theater, 210 St. James Street, beginning with refreshments at 6:30 pm. There will be a talk-back with the members of the cast and crew following the show. Tickets are $50 for this very special event.
