A NOTE FROM ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, VINCENT M. LANCISI
am fascinated by local stories with international ramifications (or vice versa). Through the examination of a specific, local story comes universal truths that often connect us with humanity across the globe. This is certainly the case with Karen Hartman’s The Book of Joseph. It’s a story about the Hollander family—right here in Baltimore—yet it’s also the story of families all over the world. It’s specifically about the Hollander family’s journey from the 1930s to today, fleeing Poland and coming to America, yet it’s also about immigration, struggle, and the value of human life. It’s in the best interest of all of us to be reminded about what can happen to a people who experience prejudice, scorn, and eviction, or worse—annihilation by a native surge of nationalism and blame. The Book of Joseph is a new kind of Holocaust story—one seen through the eyes of the next generations, children and grandchildren of survivors looking at the story from a new angle and carrying it forward. The Book of Joseph is also a story about family legacy. In the age of 23andMe, Ancestry.com, and other avenues for discovering who we are and where we come from, the Hollander family’s story demonstrates why knowing heritage—the stuff we are made of—is important. At Everyman Theatre, we are attracted to stories of families. Perhaps that’s because our Resident Company of actors and artists are a family. Our deep relationships both on and off the stage make for richly layered performances and storytelling.
Next season is filled with stories of families and close friends, laughing together, crying together, struggling to find their way and to find the light. There’s laughter and wit in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest and poetic realism found in a small Irish Village in Brian Friel’s Dancing at Lughnasa. We proudly produce a new play by Lynn Nottage—the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sweat, about generations of steel workers in Reading, PA, fighting to survive the loss of their livelihoods (it could just as well take place on the docks of Baltimore). We have a new play called Everything is Wonderful, by Chelsea Marcantel, about an Amish Family and forgiveness, and a revival of Donald Margulies Pulitzer Prize winner, Dinner With Friends, long-term relationships that continue to surprise. We end this exciting season with the Repertory World Premiere of two glorious plays by Caleen Sinnette Jennings, about a young woman from Queens who comes of age before our very eyes. Queens Girl in the World and Queens Girl in Africa take place during the tumultuous late 1950s and 60s, when the music of Motown and The Beatles served as backbeat to the surrounding political unrest. This Queens Girl, Jacqueline, goes from age 6 to 18 in the two plays, delighting and amazing us in her many discoveries of life’s surprises and contradictions. Subscribing to Everyman Theatre is easy. Nearly 5,000 people sign up every season for the rewarding, entertaining, and costeffective benefits of a year of theatre. Join our family this coming season! Enjoy the show. THE BOOK OF JOSEPH | 3
A NOTE FROM MANAGING DIRECTOR, JONATHAN K. WALLER
ike many parents, every year, my wife, Rachel, and I scramble to figure out how to fill the summer with fun, productive things for our 8-year-old daughter, Grace, to do. We’re always looking for new experiences that will both nurture her interests and give her the kind of “fun summer” every kid deserves. Last year, we found something really great that I would recommend to any parent— and it’s right here, at Everyman Theatre.
Everyman began expanding its summer programming last year to offer amazing full-week camps and one-day workshops for grades K-12. Since one of the perks of my job is knowing about these things before they get announced, I raced home one evening to share the good news with Rachel and Grace. There was a perfect-sounding camp, called Dramatic Journeys, where Grace would use her imagination (and some actor’s tools!) to jet off on amazing adventures—exploring movement, visual, art, drama, and music throughout the week. Our whole family would be invited to attend on the final day, to watch a sharing, and the cherry on top would be that Grace could ride into work with her Dad (me!) and we could leave together at the end of the day. I was so excited. Well… Grace didn’t want to go. I was crushed. Rachel and I didn’t want to push too hard, and we knew the exceptional student/teacher ratio assured that Grace would get plenty of support throughout the week—so, as a family, we decided to book her in the camp, and check back in after day one. When the first day arrived, Grace’s outlook still hadn’t changed and she was nervous—but when we walked into the lobby, sure enough,
we were greeted warmly by Everyman’s Education staff, which made Grace feel right at home (as it seemed to do for the other nervous looking kids standing close to their parents). At the end of the day, I resisted asking Grace how it went until we got outside. “Well, how was the first day?” I said casually. “Did you like it?” Silence. I held my breath. Then, with the biggest smile on her face, she said in the sweetest, most earnest way possible, “I loved it.” I could tell, too. By the end of the week, watching her confidence in the final sharing was one of those moments you don’t forget as a parent. She played Juliet and totally owned her line—“Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo”—which she had practiced over and over at home the whole week. This summer, she’s a year older and moving into Theatre Adventures—registered for three sessions, in fact—two one-day workshops and one full-week camp where Grace will get to put some of her serious spy girl/detective talents to work. Whether your student is a Kindergartener, a senior in high school, or a lifelong learner (yes, I’m talking to you grown-ups), there is really something for everyone this summer. See for yourself at everymantheatre.org/summer. Every participant benefits from high-quality learning balanced with loads of fun and warm, welcoming professional teaching artists who are some of the best in the region. Hopefully Grace and I will see you (or someone you love) over the summer at Everyman! THE BOOK OF JOSEPH | 5

HISTORICAL CONTEXT FOR THE BOOK OF JOSEPH This Playgoer’s Guide originally appeared in the printed program for Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s 2017 world premiere production of The Book of Joseph, directed by CST Artistic Director Barbara Gaines.
hat is real? The following pages provide historical context for the events surrounding The Book of Joseph and actual letters from the Hollander family. In the play itself, the Kraków letters, court transcripts and the elderly Arnold Spitzman’s language are excerpted directly from documentary material. The Kraków letters are published in Everyday Lasts a Year: A Jewish Family’s Correspondence from Poland, edited by Christopher Browning, Richard Hollander and Nechama Tec.
Right: The flow of Immigration under the proposed Immigration act of 1924. It reads: Under the present law, which expires Jan 30, 357801 immigrants are admitted. Under the proposed law 161,990 would be admitted. The smallest quotas would come from the lightly shaded countries and those sown in white, such as Austria, Romania, Turkey and Spain.

Joseph’s Polish passport
US WARTIME IMMIGRATION In the late 1930s and early 1940s, as waves of people fled Nazi-occupied Europe, the United States government had no established refugee policy. Instead, the US was operating on immigration quotas set in 1924 that did not reflect the influx of immigrants due to the changing political landscape—and resulted in thousands of refugees being kept on waiting lists. Further complicating matters, in 1931, President Herbert Hoover issued a mandate that the country would accept only those immigrants who could prove that they would not be a “public charge,” or otherwise burden society—an order disqualifying all but the wealthiest of refugees. Such isolationist rhetoric, along with widespread fear resulting from the Great Depression, developed strong anti-immigration sentiments among the American populace. As Nazi Germany became a greater threat to America and it was evident that the nation would soon be at war, the government feared that spies and saboteurs would enter the country disguised as refugees. As a result, it became all but impossible for refugees to enter the country. It was not until 1944 that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt—under intense pressure from cabinet secretaries, Jewish leaders and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt—founded the War Refugee Board to begin addressing the immigration crisis facing a world ravaged by conflict.

Hollander Family letters
OCCUPATION OF KRAKÓW Kraków, Poland has been home to Jewish residents since the early thirteenth century. By the time of the 1931 Census (as reported in 1936)—the last before the outbreak of War World II—Jews accounted for approximately one quarter of the city’s total population. Following the invasion of western Poland by Nazi forces in September 1939, approximately 20,000 additional Jews flocked from the countryside to Kraków in hopes of finding safety. Under the occupation, Jews were used as forced labor for public duties such as street sweeping and garbage collection. Wealthier families were able to pay fees to avoid such tasks, but were forced still to distinguish themselves with armbands and badges, register all property and assets and adhere to strict travel restrictions and curfews. By late October, most of Poland, including Kraków, was under Nazi rule. EVERYMAN THEATRE | 8
The Nazi government established a Jewish ghetto in March 1941—not in the centuriesold Jewish Quarter of Kraków, but along the railroad tracks to the south of the city center. The approximately 15,000 Jews allowed to remain in the city were forced to move in to the newly established ghetto and an estimated 3,000 rooms; roughly four families were assigned to each apartment. Once relocated, Jews were forbidden to travel beyond the concrete and barbed wire barriers demarcating the ghetto, and were forced to work in factories manufacturing products for the Third Reich. This urban labor regime expanded to include labor camps on the outskirts of town; where families were separated and forced to work in fields, quarries and textile plants. Two years after the Kraków Ghetto’s establishment, Nazi commanders ordered its liquidation. By March 1943, the estimated 10,000 residents who remained in the ghetto had been executed.

WHAT IS THE BROMO DISTRICT? Imagine an arts district that connects the Stadiums and Downtown with a major corridor of Theatres, Galleries, and other public displays of art. Heading north, up the main arteries of Eutaw and Howard Streets, encounter Theatres, a public marketplace, and incubators spawning pop up galleries and emerging artists to be discovered. Continue on to find arts organizations celebrating the history and heritage of Baltimore and cultural institutions leading visitors up to the northern reaches of the district at Read and Howard Streets. In the next decade the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District will become a premiere district for performances and arts exhibitions sought out by citizens of Baltimore and visitors alike. The district will offer opportunities for artists of all disciplines to live, work, and create here. The district encourages the collaboration among its stakeholders and will attract new ones offering resources towards the creation and display of the arts.

A HISTORY OF EVERYMAN
veryman Theatre was founded by Vincent Lancisi in 1990. From the beginning, Everyman strove to provide top-notch theatre that is affordable and accessible to everyone. With a Resident Company of local, professional artists, Everyman has staged critically-acclaimed productions ranging from classics to contemporary works to world premieres over the past 27 years.
Everyman’s first production—The Runner Stumbles—was produced in the winter of 1990 at Saint John’s Church. For the next four years, Everyman could only afford to produce one production per year at various locations in Baltimore, including Vagabond’s Theatre, the Theatre Project and even a classroom at MICA.
subscriptions numbers grew and a string of popular and acclaimed productions, including Amadeus, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Lion in Winter, The Glass Menagerie, The Crucible, and the wildly successful Proof, proved that Everyman was a mainstay in the Baltimore theatre scene. Through a generous donation from Bank of America and the Harold A. Dawson Trust, Everyman was given its new home on Fayette Street. Over the span of six years, Everyman completed a successful $18 million capital campaign co-chaired by Gina and Dan Hirschhorn. In January 2013, Everyman celebrated the Grand Opening of its new permanent home on Fayette Street with the record-breaking production of the Pulitzer Prize winning drama, August: Osage County.
The 1994/95 Season marked a series for firsts for Everyman. It was the first year at Everyman celebrated its 25th anniversary 1727 North Charles Street, which would during the 2015/16 Season by producing be Everyman's home for 18 years. It also "The Great American Rep," a feat featuring marked the first multi-production line-up— American classics Death of a Salesman and A starting with Sam Shepard's Buried Child— Streetcar Named Desire performed with the and also offered subscriptions to patrons for same cast in rotating repertory. the first time. Now in it’s 27th Season, Everyman invites Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, you to be a part of its next chapter.
