This one-woman play with music tells the true story of Hannah Senesh, the heroic young Jewish woman who escaped from Axis-allied Hungary in 1939 to the safety of British Mandate Palestine. More…
There she joined Haganah and then bravely volunteered for a daring Special Operations mission to parachute back into Europe to save Jews from the Holocaust. Hannah’s story and indomitable spirit, along with the moving diary and poetry that she left behind, serve as an enduring inspiration to people everywhere standing up to the powers of hatred and oppression.
See it if Schechter's noble bio-drama is heartfelt & Rabadi works hard at making Hannah three-dimensional but still feels like a "Profile in Courage"
Don't see it if Good intentions never make good drama Far too much time spend on Hannah's youth/kibbutz life; drama ignites w/her freedom fighting exploits
See it if language sometimes poetic; lead has nice voice singing songs using HS’s poetry as lyrics
Don't see it if story is simple hagiography w/o nuance; HS played in only 1 note from child 2 young woman; reminds me of overwrought college production
See it if you like historical, one-person shows, this one very well performed on a simple stage with a few props and some nice singing.
