After a successful off-Broadway and international run, Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski comes to the heart of downtown Atlanta. The award-winning professional theatre company, Theatrical Outfit, presents this critically-acclaimed play, directed by Derek Goldman, with Andrew Benator starring as the Polish emissary.
The show will run from January 24 – February 18, 2024. Tickets are available now!
Theatrical Outfit is located at the Balzer Theater at Herren’s, 84 Luckie St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30303.
This genre-defying true story focuses on a World War II hero and Holocaust witness, Jan Karski. After surviving the devastation of the Blitzkrieg, Karski swears allegiance to the Polish Underground and risks his life to carry the first eyewitness reports of war-torn Poland to the Western world and, ultimately, the White House. Escaping a Gestapo prison, bearing witness to the despair of the Warsaw ghetto, and confronted by the inhumanity of a death camp, Karski endures unspeakable mental anguish and physical torture to stand tall in the halls of power and speak the truth. The play, however, goes far beyond the historical realities of WWII and the Holocaust and explores contemporary dilemmas of an individual’s moral responsibility to act when faced with atrocities and injustice in their midst.
The original theatrical production of Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski, co-written by Clark Young and Derek Goldman, was produced by The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics at Georgetown University. It gathered wide critical acclaim while traveling around the U.S. and internationally, including a two-week tour of Poland in the winter of 2023, organized and funded by the Jan Karski Educational Foundation. The Atlanta production is co-produced by the Breman Museum.
