Who Will Carry the Word

February 8, 2019 - February 17, 2019

“Who Will Carry the Word” is a deeply moving recount of French writer Charlotte Delbo’s survival during the Holocaust. The play depicts the atrocities during this unfathomable time in history, painting an emotionally raw picture of enduring the unimaginable. While “Who Will Carry the World’ is based on existence in concentration camps, it also portrays how in times of despair, mankind comes together—bonded by strength and courage—to find hope and the will to escape a fatal fate.

The Fight to Defy the Odds


“Who Will Carry the Word” takes place in Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1942 and captures unimaginable events during World War II. A group of women who are members of the French Resistance are taken prisoner and persecuted for their political crimes. It chronicles their journey of painful survival, and heart-wrenching loss, in a death camp. Among the 230 women, only 49 lived through the brutality of starvation, illness and the agony of looming mortality. “Who Will Carry Word” also tells the story of bravery and friendship, despite crippling circumstances.

As the name of this play implies, “Who Will Carry the Word,” is a testament to Delbo’s experience and it expresses the moral obligation to tell the world about the female prisoners’ plight. Women of all religions were captured and incarcerated for their acts of rebellion; Delbo saw it as her duty to make sure that these women’s stories were heard for ages.

Who Will Carry the Word – Student Matinee

February 13, 2019 @ 9:30 am - February 14, 2019 @ 9:30 am

“Who Will Carry the Word” brings a moving story of tragedy and survival during the Holocaust to the stage. Written by French writer Charlotte Delbo, this autobiographical play takes audiences back to a poignant, indescribable time in history when the world was deeply darkened by the human brutality of World War II.

In 1942, Delbo, along with a group of women, were taken prisoner for their political crimes as members of the French Resistance. As a consequence of their rebellious acts, they were incarcerated and sent to a concentration camp left to an unbearable fate.

Together, the female prisoners endured atrocities that failed humanity. They had no choice but to desperately dig deep to find hope. Yet, even among the horror and torture, they found resiliency in the human spirit. The women banded together to courageously find the strength and will to live another day. Of the 230 women who were captured, only 49 survived illness, starvation and fear of the unknown. Delba believed it was her moral obligation—her solemn responsibility—to make sure their unfathomable journey of survival and loss is heard throughout time.

“Who Will Carry the Word” is a true testament to Delba’s journey in Auschwitz. It was a sacrifice and fight to defy the odds. It’s an expressive depiction of vulnerability and how despair can bond women. It’s just one portrayal of one of mankind’s most heart-wrenching periods in history that can’t be ignored.
Ethington Theatre invites you to a production that pays homage to these women, Delbo and her purpose to chronicle crippling existence in a death camp for generations to come. Registration will be available soon.

A Spiritual Singalong Takes Stage


“Godspell” takes you on a musical adventure full of parables from “The Gospel According to Matthew.” Jesus recruits a jovial troupe of followers who perform these parables to teach lessons, from being a good Samaritan and following the golden rule to glorifying God. Parables pay tribute to lyrics from traditional hymns, while the group also partakes in games, tomfoolery, and pantomime. Among a collection of eclectic songs ranging in style, “Day by Day,” from the original cast album, is known as an international hit. The story eventually takes a turn when Judas betrays Jesus, ending with The Last Supper and Jesus’ haunting Crucifixion. Above all, “Godspell” shares Jesus’ message of friendship, loyalty, tolerance, and love.

"Godspell” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials also supplied by MTI, 423 West 55th Street, New York, NY 10019 | Tel.: (212) 541-4684 Fax: (212) 397-4684 www.MTIShows.com
