An exclusive look at this National Yiddish Theatre Foksbiene production in development, chronicling the darkest era in the Soviet Union when former wartime heroes of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee were persecuted as enemies of the state for daring to report on the truth of the Holocaust in the German-occupied East. It is a story about human nature and the ability to find friendship, forgiveness and love in even the most trying times.

When Blood Ran Red gives an account of the friendships between African-American actor and civil rights activist Paul Robeson and leading Soviet Jews after World War II, during the brutal reign of Josef Stalin. The driving point of the action deals with the removal of the Russian Yiddish theatre and purge of Yiddish and Jewish culture and life in the Stalin era.

Two productions on June 16: 2 PM or 6 PM

In English; tickets are $25
