Never Is Now

Never Is NowThe past is prologue. What happens when people from diverse backgrounds experience the firsthand accounts of ten survivors who were labeled "undesirable" and thrust into Hitler’s systematic genocide?

Playwright Wendy Kout links then and now so that we may understand what breaks us apart and embrace what bonds us together. NEVER IS NOW is just the beginning of the conversation.

Never is Now was adapted from Survivors by Wendy Kout commissioned, developed and produced by the CenterStage Theatre at the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester, Ralph Meranto, Artistic Director.

“I am ever inspired by our capacity to change… our world, our country, and ourselves. ‘Never is Now’ explores the perilous past through the prism of our perilous present as a warning for our future,” says Wendy Kout
