The Permanent Chair of Polish Culture and the Polish Art Club of Buffalo, with assistance from the Polish Legacy Project, will present “Uprising” on Saturday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the college’s Marie Maday Theatre. “Uprising” is an original play by Grace Alberti, Lale Davidson and Catie LeCours about the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, presented by the Ad Astra Theatre Troupe Ltd. The Troupe is organized, staffed and directed by high school students who wrote the play in response to a presentation on the women of the Warsaw Uprising by Alina Nowobliska. After some 5,000 hours of research and creative interplay, and with a review and support from Sophie Hodorowicz Knab, author of Wearing the Letter “P” Polish Women as Forced Laborers in Nazi Germany, this play was first performed in Saratoga Springs, NY. We are fortunate to have this troupe of talented and historically-minded young people join us for this performance which is presented in memory of Stanley Blake, a Polish and American Veteran.
