Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille will be the venue for the Canadian premiere of Hungarian-Jewish playwright George Tabori's My Mother's Courage.

Running March 12-30, the play is a black comedy. Tabori conjures his mother out of the past and into the present of the theatre.

He celebrates the true story of a summer's day in Budapest in 1944 when his mother, on her way to her sister's, is instead arrested, put on a train and deported. The story tells of her great courage, and good fortune, in her escape.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution had this to say about My Mothers Courage, "I can think of no other play about the Holocaust that puts such a human face on the unthinkable. Laced with humourous incogruities, slapstick and wit, it's not your usual evening at the theatre."

Tickets are available at (416) 504 7529. -- By Ray Ellicock
