FST Forums - Discovering Heritage

FST invites you to join us for conversations with some of the country's top playwrights creating art today. Hear directly from these artists about their processes and what it takes to get a play on its feet.

FST audiences may remember the work of husband and wife creative team Jason Odell Williams and Charlotte Cohn from their Winter Mainstage play, Handle With Care. Now, we reconnect with the couple as they share about their latest work – a musical – which continues their creative exploration of Cohn’s Jewish heritage. As the Nazis plan to round up all of the Danish Jews for concentration camp assignment in the fall of 1943, one family of five attempts to elude capture by hiding in a fishing boat traveling to Sweden — and freedom. In this FST Forum, we’ll examine what it takes to bring such an emotionally-charged story to life and how to tell a true story with justice, authenticity, and heart.
