Etty, a One-Woman Play Based on the Diaries of Etty Hillesum*
In this one-woman play using only her subject’s words, Susan Stein brings us to 1941, when Esther “Etty” Hillesum, a young Dutch Jewish woman, is living in Amsterdam. Upon the recommendation of her therapist, she began a diary on to help her with her depression. The diaries take on their own literary life, presenting both Etty’s growth as a writer and her spiritual transformation. As deportations begin and she prepares for the three-day journey eastward, she digs deeper into her soul to understand this piece of history. In her gentle yet forthright way, Etty asks us not to leave her at Auschwitz but to let her have a bit of a say in what she hopes will be a new world.
