Bring Remember: The Story of Abe Price to your classroom, school, or cultural center to experience a vital true story through a unique theatrical experience.

 Remember: The Story of Abe Price by Jeffrey Binder, a new original play based on a true story, is brought to you in partnership with The Holocaust Museum and Cohen Education Center of Naples.

At just 16-years-old, Abraham Piasecki’s life is uprooted by the Nazi invasion of Poland. From living in the the ghetto of Kielce to imprisonment at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Remember brings to life the harrowing true story of a Holocaust survivor who escaped Nazi captivity five times. This immersive, challenging, and ultimately captivating story of resilience brings us into one man’s memories and asks us to never forget.
Booking performances for Remember will begin on November 1st and is available to all schools and student organizations in the Southwest Florida region. For classroom performances, Remember features 1) a pre-show lesson taught by a Holocaust Museum staff member, 2) the performance of Remember with actor talkback, and 3) a post-performance activity designed to encourage students to reflect and discuss content, themes, and their response to the play. Assembly performances will include the second components\.
Project  History: Gulfshore Playhouse first partnered with the Holocaust Museum in 2017 to present In Flight: The Story of Sabine Van Dam by Hester Kamin, created in response to a rise of anti-Semitic incidents in Collier County. Since its inception, this unique partnership has been witnessed by over 8,000 people in the Southwest Florida region.
