REMNANTS: A one-person stage play
written and performed by psychologist/playwright Dr. Henry "Hank" Greenspan.

Listening is an art Dr. Henry "Hank" Greenspan has perfected. A noted psychology professor and playwright, Greenspan has devoted the bulk of his career to ongoing conversations with Holocaust survivors. By listening in the most open way possible, Greenspan has found a way to elicit memories in a powerful and accessible manner.'

Greenspan's one-person play, "Remnants," is based on those conversations. lt was initially produced for radio and broadcast on National Public Radio stations across the United States in 1991. Since the late 1990s, Greenspan has presented the piece to over 200 audiences in the United States, Canada and Europe, including performances at the British Museum, the John Houseman Theater in New York, and in the Magdeburg barracks of the former Theresienstadt concentration camp, a spaced used for performances during the Holocaust itself.

Greenspan will perform "Remnants" on Sunday, March 6 at 3:00 p.m. in the Kirby Rafters of the University of Minnesota Duluth Kirby Student Center. A light reception will follow a question and answer session after the play. This event is free and open to the public.

The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
