More than a half century after the end of WWII, at the desperate urging of a passionate survivor, a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story.

Played out against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity, the critically acclaimed The Soap Myth, written by Jeff Cohen, questions who has the authority to write and record history — those people who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort it? And what is all our responsibility towards a truth we have lived?

NJTF Awards with Sir Ronald Harwood (Oscar-winning screenwriter, The Pianist), Martin Sherman (playwright, Bent) and Duncan C. Weldon (Producer, Bent).

Prior to the screening, The National Jewish Theater Foundation Awards will honour the work of those who have made valuable contributions to Jewish voices in theatre.

Panel discussion with Henry Goodman

After the screening, Digital Theatre and the National Jewish Theater Foundation will host a panel discussion, featuring esteemed figures from the world of theatre, film and museums.
