The Chronicles of Rose
November 5
7:30 PM
Congressional Beth Israel — 53 Lois Street
(413) 663-5830
Free, with a discussion to follow.

Local theatre artist David Lane will bring an evening of puppetry and discussion to Congregation Beth Israel with The Chronicles of Rose, a puppet play which tells the story of Nazi plundering of art and artifacts during World War II. The Chronicles of Rose is the real-life story of Rose Valland, the curator of the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris which was commandeered by the Nazis during the occupation of France in World War II. 

The Chronicles of Rose is supported in part by a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation and by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
