The extraordinary true story of Abe, a man the playwright met at his synagogue. Abe was a fellow of great humor and heart who not only survived three years at Auschwitz—certainly the worst place on earth—but fell in love there. Abe’s life speaks to the resilience of the human spirit, renewal and hope, even when there seems to be none.
Includes an interview with playwright Stephen Tobolowsky and LATW Producing Director Susan Loewenberg.
