The Devil's Arithmetic
It seems like Hannah is in for another boring Passover with her family—but suddenly, she finds herself transported to 1942 Poland. Hannah is mistaken for a local young woman, and to her horror, the Nazis take her and her Jewish neighbors to a concentration camp. Based on Jane Yolen's acclaimed novel of the same name, The Devil's Arithmetic explores themes of faith, family, and survival. Yolen herself praised this adaptation, saying that the script "[gets] to the heart, the blood, the bone of [her] story."
Prime Stage Theatre
The dynamic, multi-dimensional productions at Prime Stage Theatre take their inspiration from an imagination-stimulating source: literature. The company adapts stories with the intent of educating the audience, inspiring them to thought and action while still entertaining. Many of Prime Stage's plays are world-premiere works, which frequently go on to theaters across the country and throughout neighboring galaxies. Beyond the stage, the company extends its outreach with unique programs and welcomes guest artists such as author Lois Lowry for special workshops. The organization's on- and off-stage work on behalf of young people has garnered widespread acclaim, including from the American Alliance for Theatre and Education.
Books may look like inanimate stacks of paper, but they have stuff inside them. Good stuff. Smart stuff. Compelling stuff. The mission of Prime Stage is to bring that stuff to life. With adaptations that run the gamut from children's classics such as The Westing Game and Walk Two Moons to historical classics such as The Diary of Anne Frank and A Woman Called Truth, the company has spent nearly 20 years bringing literature to the stage.
