WORLD PREMIERE NOVEMBER 21, 2014

 

It’s been said that the other side of love is hate. But is it possible that the other side of hate is love?

 

 

TRAIN TO ZAKOPANÉ: A true story of hate and love, a new play by Henry Jaglom, reveals humanity in the most unlikely of places – prejudice. This original new play, which will have its World Premiere November 21st at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, is based upon true events that occurred in the life of Henry Jaglom’s father as he crossed Poland on a train in 1928. Anti-Semitism was, at that time, rife in much of Europe, especially in Poland. In TRAIN TO ZAKOPANÉ: A true story of hate and love, a successful Russian businessman meets a captivating young nurse in the Polish army on a train-trip to Warsaw, and he is faced with a life-changing dilemma when he discovers that the nurse he is drawn to – and who is enchanted by him -- is fiercely anti-Semitic. Will he reveal to her he is Jewish? Will he move toward love, or will he move toward revenge? The actual train-ride across Poland – and the weekend stop-over in the resort town of Zakopané that followed - haunted Henry Jaglom’s father for a lifetime.

 

TRAIN TO ZAKOPANÉ: A true story of hate and love explores the human condition in its darkest and most exquisite moments. It is a compelling love story that lays bare how compassion and intolerance can, even in the most unusual of circumstances, be one.

 

Tanna Frederick stars as the nurse and her co-star as the Russian businessman is Mike Falkow. The supporting cast features Jeff Elam, Cathy Arden, Stephen Howard and Kelly DeSarla, all of whom have performed at The Edgemar before. Ms. Frederick most recently had a highly acclaimed one-year run at The Edgemar starring in the hit production of N.Richard Nash’s The Rainmaker. Prior to that she also was praised for starring in very long runs of Sylvia(as the title dog in A.R. Guerney’s classic play) and in Mr Jaglom’s Just 45 Minutes From Broadway andAlways-But Not Forever among others.

 

TRAIN TO ZAKOPANÉ: A true story of hate and love is produced by Alexandra Guarnieri and directed by Gary Imhoff, who previously directed Mr. Jaglom’s Always But Not ForeverJust 45 Minutes From Broadway, and A.R. Gurney’s Sylvia at the Edgemar Center for the Arts.

 

Tickets cost $34.99 for general admission. TRAIN TO ZAKOPANÉ: A true story of hate and love will run Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 5:00 pm.
