Fischler Student Presents “My Life Imprismed” Performance Exploring Generational Effects of the Holocaust

The Interdisciplinary Arts Program of NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler School of Education proudly presents, “My Life Imprismed,” a reader’s theatre production of the capstone play written by published author and IAP graduate student, Rachael Scandarion, under the mentorship of IAP professor, Norman Fedder, Ph.D.

Scandarion’s “My Life Imprismed” takes her audience on an adventure of self-discovery shaped and inspired by the tortured tragedy of her father’s scars as a child survivor of the Nazi Holocaust, her own scars as the next-generation innocent who becomes the target in his crosshairs, and the family dynamic that is caught in the middle.

With generous doses of catharsis sweetened by a daughter’s unconditional love and the power of forgiveness, the characters are at once endearing, enlightening, and tragic; and weave a quilt of colorful lives sewn together by common threads of humankind’s greatness and brutality, and the impact of both on next generations.

While the subject matter is sobering, “My Life Imprismed” is written with wit, compassion, a fair amount of fitting expletives, and an engaging performance environment that invites the audience to express their reactions and connections to the play and production.

“My Life Imprismed” will be presented on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 4 p.m. at NSU’s Black Box Theatre in the Don Taft University Center located at the Main campus in Davie.

Tickets cost $15 for general public, and $10 for students, seniors and teachers. For tickets and more information please contact: Rachael Scandarion at 954-560-6307 or rs185@nova.edu.
