The Play

Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn—best known for memorable turns in films including Good Night, and Good Luck, Nomadland, and Lincoln—takes the stage in a tour-de-force performance. Meet World War II hero Jan Karski who, after surviving the devastation of his native Poland by Nazi Germany, risks his life to carry the first eyewitness reports of the Holocaust to the White House, only to be met with inaction and disbelief. Strathairn captures the remarkable life of the self-described “insignificant, little man” who spoke truth in the halls of power in a timely story of moral courage.
