Seven-time Emmy Award-winner Ed Asner and three-time Emmy Award and Tony Award-nominee Kate Burton will star in readings of Jeff Cohen’s play The Soap Myth in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Played out against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity,the story takes place more than a half century after the end of WWII when a young journalist sets out to write an article about a cantankerous Holocaust survivor and his crusade regarding the Nazi atrocity of soap. The4 play explores how a person survives and questions who has the right to write history – those who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort its very existence. And finally, what is all our responsibility once we know the truth.
