OVERVIEW

RIVETING. An innovative multisensory experience

The Washington Post

Hailed as the “best theatre of the year” (Los Angeles Times) this celebrated new production from Tony-nominated director Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project (The Laramie Project), comes to Princeton with an unmissable, two-week-only engagement.  
 
In 2007, a mysterious album featuring Nazi-era photographs arrived at the desk of a U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist. As curators unraveled the shocking truth behind the images, the album soon made headlines and ignited a debate that reverberated far beyond the museum walls. Based on real events, Here There Are Blueberries tells the story of these historical photographs—what they reveal about the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and our own humanity.

  

Tectonic Theater Project and McCarter are partnering with the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE), the production’s Content & Conversation partner, to curate a series of post-show discussions and engagement events for the play where leading ethicists, scholars, and audiences can discuss the complex issues raised in the play—and consider their relevance for today. 

Conversations will take place directly after the following performances:

Saturday, February 1 at 2PM
Sunday, February 2 at 2PM
Saturday, February 8 at 2PM

  

ABOUT FASPE
FASPE challenges its professionals to recognize and exercise their ethical and leadership responsibilities as influencers. FASPE’s distinctive approach is to examine the roles and behavior of individual professionals in Germany and elsewhere between 1933 and 1945 as an initial framework for approaching ethical responsibility in the professions today. Each year, FASPE awards 80 to 90 Fellowships to graduate students and early-career professionals in Business, Design & Technology, Journalism, Law, Medicine, and Seminary. The Fellowships begin with intense study in Germany and Poland where FASPE takes advantage of the urgency created by the power of place to translate the history into the present.
