'And A Child Shall Lead' is the heroic and true story of the children coming of age in Terezin, the “Jewish city” established by the Nazis near Prague. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty – playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper – all at the peril of being executed.
This drama contains poems and stories written by some of the young prisoners. It is the result of interviews with survivors and from research and archives and museum collections in the Czech Republic, and evoke the universality of children caught in the insanity of war.
I strongly encourage cast members and parents to read the script prior to auditions. A portion of it can be found on the Playscripts, Inc. website athttps://www.playscripts.com/play/1242. This is a strong drama based on historical events.
