Second Generation Network AGM and Play Reading on Sunday 2nd July 2017

Play Reading at AGM on 2 July 2017 highly moving

Following the Second Generation Network AGM, there was a play-reading from First Generation member Ruth Barnett’s play What Price Justice? The play tells the true story behind the (German public television broadcaster) ZDF’s recently-released German film, Landgericht (County Court). The film was based on Ursula Kreche’s novel of the same name, winner of the 2012 Frankfurt Book Prize.

This was the world première of Ruth’s two-act play exploring the precarious nature of justice, imperilled in Nazi Germany – and potentially again today. Tracy Elster directed and Laura Pradelska (Game of Thrones) took on a starring role; both are Network members. AGM attendees were able to join Ruth and members of her family taking on one of the roles (large or small).

Ruth Barnett instigated the formation of the Second Generation Network, by drawing together the group that produced the Network’s newsletter, originally called Second Generation Voice, following the second Link conference for members of the Second Generation that took place in 1995.
