Never Is Now

Skylight Theatre
1816 1/2 N. Vermont Los Angeles

The past is prologue. What happens when people from diverse backgrounds experience the firsthand accounts of ten survivors who were labeled "undesirable" and thrust into Hitler’s systematic genocide. Playwright Wendy Kout disturbingly links then and now so we may understand what breaks us apart and embrace what bonds us together. NEVER IS NOW is just the beginning of the conversation.

Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"...Thanks to directors Tony Abatemarco and Celia Mandela Rivera, the actors all give very moving performances and by the end of the play, I was emotionally devastated. This is a very important play. Soon the survivors will be gone, but it’s vital that their stories live on. Never Is Now is making sure that happens."

Night Tinted Glasses - Recommended

"...The subject matter of Never Is Now by Wendy Kout can almost not not work. Recounting in chronological order the lives of young people who survived the Holocaust nearly seven decades ago needs only basic competence to strike the heart. Such remains the nature of that atrocity--or, more accurately, that cascade of atrocities. Who cannot find themselves moved?"

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Never is Now is firmly rooted in the incredible stories of 10 people who lived through the Holocaust against all odds, but its play-within-a-play framing device also calls into question how we choose the stories we tell. As artists, to which material do we choose to lend our voices? And as people, how do we stand against oppression without letting anger burn us out? What can we do when it seems like we’re powerless in the face of injustice? Never is Now says it best: “We tell the truth and inspire others to keep fighting.”"
