Play tells story of hope for girl during Holocaust

Powerstories Theatre presents I Never Saw Another Butterfly on Wednesdays through Sundays, Oct. 29-Nov. 16 as the first show in its PowerPlay Series.

The play, written by Celeste Raspanti, will be performed at Powerstories Theater, 2105 W. Kennedy Blvd. in Tampa.

The show is at 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Thursdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $20 per person. Group rates and discounts are available.

A true story, I Never Saw Another Butterfly is set in 1942 and is about 12-year-old Raja Englanderova, who was sent to Terezin, a Czechoslovakian ghetto that was a way-station for Jewish prisoners bound for Auschwitz.

In those bleak surroundings she meets Irena Synkova, a teacher who is secretly giving art and writing classes for the children. This play is about hope in the face of intimidation and the power of education and art to bring out the best in every person.

To purchase tickets or for more information, go to to or call (813) 253- 2000.
