The Soap Myth, written by Jeff Cohen and directed by Pam Berlin, is set more than 50 years after the end of World War II, and dramatizes the warm friendship that develops between a young Jewish journalist and a cantankerous Holocaust Survivor on a crusade about including “soap” in Holocaust museums – Did the Nazis make soap from the corpses of murdered Jews? Along the way the play grapples with the pernicious evil of antisemitism masquerading as Holocaust denial. The Soap Myth asks provocative questions like “Who has the right to write history?” and “How does a survivor survive surviving?”

The Soap Myth will be performed at the Sarasota Opera House on Tuesday, April 16 – Individual tickets for the reading of The Soap Myth start at only $25 and are available online at SarasotaOpera.org, in person at the Sarasota Opera Box Office at 61 N. Pineapple Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236, or by calling (941) 328-1300.
