Local playwright will present ‘An Angel from Auschwitz’

The American Stage Theater Company will present Mark E. Leib, a playwright with national and local productions, in a professional reading of his new play, An Angel from Auschwitz, on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. at Raymond James Theatre, 163 Third St. N. in St. Petersburg.

This is a two-part play about memory and responsibility, according to the American Stage Theater Company website. In act one, an 18-year old Terry asks his father to reveal what secret thing he witnessed during World War II. In act two, Terry is 40 years old and is visited, along with his wife and daughter, by a fiery Holocaust survivor who makes severe demands on them all.

Following the reading, there will be a talk back with the author.

Leib teaches creative writing at the University of South Florida and is a theater critic for Creative Loafing. He is a Tampa native with a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and a graduate degree from Yale Drama School.

For tickets, go online to http:// or call the American Stage Box Office at (727) 823-7529. This is a “pay what you can” event.
