About the Play:

For This Moment Alone is a full-length drama by Marcia Kash. A moving drama about a family coping with the aftermath of the holocaust. They are trying to get a family member to their home in Toronto. It is not until they go to meet him at the train station that they discover another man has assumed his identity and taken his papers in order to escape war-torn Germany after WWII.

For This Moment Alone is set in Toronto in 1948. A Jewish family, struggling to recover from the horrors of the war in Europe, finally has cause to rejoice. Ruth is about to be reunited with the only surviving member of her immediate family – her brother Freddie. But when she goes to Union Station to meet him she is faced with the most devastating shock of her young life – the brother she was expecting turns out to be a stranger, an imposter holding her brother's papers. Suddenly she and the family with whom she lives are forced into a situation that is almost impossible to resolve. If they abandon this displaced person they condemn him to more pain, more suffering and risk the possibility of his being deported. For Joe, the patriarch of the family, there is no choice: to save one live is to save the world. He takes this enigmatic "Freddie" into his home and calls upon himself and the other members of the household to embark on finding some way of living with their suspicions, their anger and their guilt. At what point do you stop helping your fellow man? Should there be a line between "blood" and "water"? Where does responsibility end? The play follows the paths of Ruthie, Joe and the rest of the family as they come to terms with what it means to accept, to forgive and to survive.

For This Moment Alone premiered in 2011 at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton, Ontario. It was a critical and box-office success and proved extremely popular with audiences, and has since been produced in Canada and the United States.

What people say:

"A storyteller with a story to tell who won't let you down…an evening of rich, traditional theatre." — View Magazine

"There's plenty of prickly thought in Kash's engaging drama…There's also warmth and wisdom that lessens the anguish of the play's frightening conclusion. Let's just say there are revelations that make you understand the length a human being will go to survive the impossible." — Hamilton Spectator
