BE INSPIRED… This compelling and passionate drama by playwright Arthur Giron (Becoming Memories, The Coffee
Trees
, Emilie's Voltaire, and Amazing Grace) explores the life and legend of EDITH STEIN, an early 20th century German- Jewish intellectual who converted to Roman Catholicism after World War I. Experiencing a deepening of her faith, she entered a Cloistered Carmelite Convent in 1933. In 1942, she died at Auschwitz—as a Jew. In 1998, she was canonized by Pope John Paul II and is now known as St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.

This inspiring, dramatic, and engaging story is told in flashback scenes that bring to life the courageous choices of a woman of deep faith, compassion, and understanding.

EDITH STEIN will be directed by Jerry Lloyd and star Leslie Lloyd.

As complex and compelling as FRI SAT the lady it portrays.
—Pitsburgh Tribune Review

Absolutely stunning… magnificent theatre.
