Journey into the Whirlwind

0n Thursday evening, March 24, at 7:00 p.m., Amnesty International of The Claremont Colleges, in cooperation with the Athenaeum, presents Journey into the Whirlwind (1983), a one-woman dramatic monologue adapted and performed by Rebecca Schull. The performance is based on the memoirs of Eugenia Ginzburg, Russian history teacher and poet who served 18 years slave labor under Stalin's regime for the nonviolent expression of her beliefs. In this riveting production Schull becomes Eugenia Ginzburg, offering a powerful depiction of this woman's personal struggle for freedom. This will be the only time Journey into the Whirlwind will be performed in Claremont, and it will be free of charge students, faculty, staff, and members of the community.

A veteran of stage, screen, and television, Rebecca Schull has performed her play on two continents. Mark your calendars now, plan on attending this very special evening at McKenna Auditorium, and join us at the Athenaeum after the performance for coffee with Ms. Schull.
