Train Theater | by Ronit Kano
The play is based on the biography of Jacques Kano
Noa really doesn’t feel like doing her family tree project. She has way more interesting things to do. Besides, all the other kids have grandmas and grandpas with impressive heroic stories, and only her grandpa is not a pioneer, a warrior, or a hero.
Slowly and gently, with the help of special tree sculptures, shadows, live music, and even humor, Grandpa Hugo reveals his story to Noa. A stirring, compassionate story about a time when evil raged in the world, and on the inherent goodness of humankind. The story Grandpa Hugo tells Noa is full of love and courage, and it has only good people.
In memory of Francois and Maria Knops and Rev. Jan Brujan of Belgium. Righteous among the nations.
