The Soap Myth Presented by Arsht Center


The Soap Myth Presented by Arsht Center

In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Seven-time Emmy Award-winner Ed Asner (Pixar’s UP, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant) and two-time Tony Award-nominee (including for last season's Pulitzer Prize winning play Sweat) Johanna Day (Madam Secretary, The Knick, All My Children) will star in the play reading along with Ned Eisenberg and Blair Baker.

More than a half century after WW II at the desperate urging of a passionate survivor, a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story. Played out against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity, the critically acclaimed The Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen questions who has the right to write history—those people who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort its very existence? And finally, what is all our responsibility once we know the truth?
