The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona will be presenting a special one night performance of No Way Out, a play by Tucson resident Susan Shear, on Thursday evening, November 13th, 2014 at the Holsclaw Theatre at the Temple of Music and Art.

No Way Out chronicles the true story of the playwright's family members in their own words taken from a collection of over 500 letters they wrote one another in their attempt to flee Nazi Germany. Performed throughout the country during the last 15 years at theaters, museums, history centers and universities, as well as 3 times at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, No Way Out is a gentle story of an ordinary family, geographically torn apart whose only means of communication is through their letters.

Most of the dialogue is read from the letters but a minimal amount of narrative must be memorized. Rehearsals will be held in October and November though scripts will be distributed by September. Dress rehearsal is November 12th at the theatre. An honorarium or stipend may be available if funding permits.

Please contact: Susan for more information regarding auditions, the performance and the play itself.
