Hidden Twins: A New Play Reading
Mon September 13, 2021 @ 19:30 - 21:00
Join us on September 13th at 7:30pm for Hidden Twins: A New Play Reading, inspired by the true story of Vera and Nadia Debnar, and the final instalment of our 2021 Independent Microgrants for Creative and Cultural Exploration, presented at the Segal Centre
Identical twins, Vera and Nadia’s love of play-acting helped to save their lives when they were forced to masquerade as Protestants to avoid detection by the Nazis. Performing new identities once offered salvation; but as the war ends, Nadia and Vera must now come to terms with who they really are in relation to their culture, to their country, and to each other.
Written by Alice Abracen and directed by Ellen David, featuring a stunning cast of talent, Hidden Twins will be read live at the Segal Centre. Admission is free but limited; click here to reserve tickets through the Segal Centre and learn more about their health and safety protocols.
