Dramawise: The Messenger

December 11, 2023 @ 3:00 pm


The past and present are interwoven into a beautiful and thought-provoking play centered on the experience of Holocaust survivor Georgia Gabor and a young woman facing discrimination in the United States in 2020. The Messenger by Jenny Connell Davis is a reflection on either speaking up and speaking out or remaining silent for the sake of self-preservation. In this interactive discussion about the Palm Beach Dramaworks world premiere production, PBD’s Gary Cadwallader examines the characters, their intertwined relationship, and the major themes of discrimination and resistance. Multimedia clips supporting the discussion are utilized to enhance and support the story. Participants receive a copy of the play beforehand, and a comprehensive, informative PBD Dramaguide written specifically for this discussion. After an in-depth conversation, participants leave with a deeper understanding of the play, and how past atrocities impact the present. Space is limited.
