INTERPLAY JOINS WITH ANSHE CHESED FAIRMOUNT TEMPLE
STILL STANDING: A Musical Survival Guide for Life’s Catastrophes
Written and performed by ANITA HOLLANDER
SATURDAY, NOV. 18, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Fairmount Temple, 23737 Fairmount Blvd., Beachwood, OH
New York-based actor/singer/songwriter ANITA HOLLANDER wrote her evening of original songs to chronicle a journey that began when she was a college student stricken with cancer. A recurrence when she was 26 led to the amputation of one leg, leaving her to perform for more than three decades on the other one. The New York Times review of STILL STANDING called her “provocative, funny, moving, communicative and beautifully polished [with] a wide rainbow of vocal colors that she uses with dramatic sensitivity as well as comic insights…. plus a charming presence that flavors everything she does.” She has performed the show off Broadway, at the White House, across America and around the world. She returns to her native Cleveland for this one-time event, with her sister Rachel signing for the hearing impaired.
A $10 donation is requested at the door, by cash or check. The event is underwritten, in part, by the Roy and Eunice Berko Fund at Interplay.

A man known only as “Ulysses” has just sailed his raft made of plastic bottles through a naval blockade of Gaza. His cargo: cartons of Russian Literature destined for Palestinians living there. Israeli authorities are obliged to charge him for his act of defiance, but in so doing, they must listen to what motivated it. The Jerusalem Post called Ulysses on Bottles “an allegory on the definition of freedom, what it means, what it entails and what it demands.” Ulysses was named winner of the 2012 Israel Theatre Prize for Best Original Play.
Discussion follows both performances.
ADMISSION IS FREE. DONATIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED
RESERVATIONS AT firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 216 393-PLAY.
