"That rarefied place where craft, collaboration and content create theatrical poetry is everywhere in The Last Act of Lilka Kadison at the Falcon Theatre." - LA Times
About the Show
Abbie Phillips and Jan Kallish in association with Lookingglass Theatre Company
Written by Nicola Behrman, David Kersnar, Abbie Phillips, Heidi Stillman, Andy White
Directed by Dan Bonnell
Opening Night is March 28 at 8pm.
At age seventeen, Lilka Kadison flees Poland on the eve of World War II. Seventy years later in Los Angeles, she's spending her afternoon hassling her son, wrestling her caregiver, and arguing with the ghost who keeps rearranging her furniture - and her memories. Join us on this journey about the power of story, humor and grace in the face of loss. Originally premiered at the Tony Award winning Lookingglass Theatre.
Join us for lively and thought-provoking talkbacks after the show, curated by Yiddishkayt:

Food on a Schtick. – Recipes and Stories from a South Pacific Jewish Family, joins Rob Adler Peckerar, Ph.D. to discuss the intricate connection between tragedy and comedy, in life and in the theater.
