Description: One of the most widely produced new plays, And Then They Came for Me is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews of Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives. Ed was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in her now-famous diary. Eva Schloss lived in the same apartment building as Anne Frank while in Amsterdam. On Eva's 15th birthday, her family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. Eva and her mother survived, and after the war her mother married Otto Frank (Anne's father). Part oral history, part dramatic action and part remembrance, this compelling drama breaks new ground in the Children's Theatre genre.
