Reading: Smoke of Home (Dým domova)


Smoke of Home reading, Seattle

On August 2, 2009, several actors and family members gathered at the home of Kate Elias, widow of Terezín author Zdeněk Eliáš, for a working reading of the play Smoke of Home.  Thank you to all for your hard work and patience -- we were able to solve several translation questions to ensure that the script works as spoken text as well as an accurate translation.  A special thanks to Kate for hosting and to Julia for organizing the actors' participation.
