A Poignant Play Distorts WW II History to Serve a False Narrative
The Theater for a New Audience is staging Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski. Playwright Derek Goldman is Georgetown University Professor of Theater and Performance Studies "with a joint appointment in the School of Foreign Service as Professor of Global Performance, Culture and Politics." His "mission" is "to harness the power of performance to humanize global politics." Playwright Clark Young was a Georgetown student of Goldman. Young went on to teach high school. Goldman requested Young's help in crafting a play about Jan Karski, who had taught at Georgetown. Previously, Young had known nothing about Karski.
