A touching true story about the experiences of Jewish children who lived in Terezin during WWII. It is a story of tragedy—of the importance of art, music, education and culture in peoples' lives. It is a story of hope and inspiration as children helped one another and overcame hate.
Content & Parental guidance
I Never Saw Another Butterfly runs 1 hour and deals with serious subjects, primarily centered on the concentration camp of Terezin. The play is a memory piece, so we hear about the experience and hope and strength of Raja, a survivor of Terezin. No deaths, violence, torture, or actual disturbing experiences are portrayed, just referenced in the poems and remembrances of the children. Parents should consider what each individual child can handle, but the show is appropriate from an educational point of view for 10 years old and up. A Missouri S&T Professor of History with much research into the holocaust will be speaking after each performance for an audience "talk-back" and Q&A time.
