HERE THERE ARE BLUEBERRIES
By Moisés Kaufman and Amanda Gronich
Conceived & Directed by Moisés Kaufman
Devised with Scott Barrow, Amy Marie Seidel, Frances Uku, Grant James Varjas, and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project
Here There Are Blueberries is the winner of the 2022 Theater J Trish Vradenburg Jewish Play Prize.
Please note: The production runs 90 minutes with no intermission.
A mysterious album of never before seen Nazi-era photographs arrives at the desk of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist Rebecca Erbelding. As Rebecca and her team of historians begin to unravel the shocking story behind the images, the album soon makes headlines around the world. In Germany, a businessman sees the album online, recognizes his own grandfather in the photos, and begins a journey of discovery that will lead him to a reckoning of his family’s past and his country’s history.
Here There Are Blueberries tells the story of these photographs – what they reveal about the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and about our own humanity.
STC and Tectonic Theater Project have created resources, educational guides, and engagement events for Here There
Are Blueberries. We have partnered with Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) to curate a series of post-show conversations, where leading ethicists, scholars, and audiences can discuss the complex issues raised in the play—and consider their relevance for today. Conversations are open to the public and take place directly after the performance.
