MOM ON SKYPE - Live Play by Ukrainian kids art school from Lviv

LOCATION: Center Makor, 384 Harvard St, Brookline, MA 02446

The play was created by a group of children from a Lviv theater “School of Arts of the Free and Caring”, directed by Oleg Oneshchak based on the book of the same name “Mom via Skype”. In a bomb shelter in Lviv, Ukraine, April 26, 2022 being a young soldier on duty, Oleg rehearses this play with a cast of 9 children between the ages of 10 and 14 including his own daughter. This story raises the irritating and ambiguous topic of social orphanhood as a consequence of labor migration and, more broadly, the communication gap between parents and children. Yet in the light of the russian aggression against Ukraine the play got a deeper meaning.
