“The Soap Myth" at the SYJCC.

Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Seven-time Emmy Award-winner Ed Asner and Tovah Feldshuh will star in a staged reading of Jeff Cohen’s play, “The Soap Myth” at the SYJCC.

“The Soap Myth” takes place more than a half century after the end of WWII when a young journalist sets out to write an article about a Holocaust survivor and his crusade regarding the Nazi atrocity of soap. The play dramatically explores how a person survives and questions who has the right to write history – those who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort and desecrate its very existence.

The Soap Myth will play one night only at The SYJCC performing Arts Center on Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m. with a VIP reception beginning at 6pm. The Soap Myth will serve as a tribute to International Holocaust Remembrance Day which is on Jan. 27. This performance is the only Long Island appearance on a five-venue, east coast tour.
