“The Soap Myth” – A Staged Reading of the Acclaimed Play

In honor of International Holocaust Memorial Day, Hofstra Hillel, in association with Burke Cohen Entertainment, presents a staged reading of

The Soap Myth

More than a half century after WW II, at the desperate urging of a passionate survivor, a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story. Played out against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity, the critically acclaimed The Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen questions who has the right to write history—those people 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 our responsibility once we know the truth?

                                                                                         – History News Network

“Continues to haunt me… this is the theatre of witness at its best – provocative and morally ambiguous.”
