The Harmonium Project, represented by Sarita Asawa, its president, and the Ohio Valley Youth Network and Sycamore Youth Center, represented by Bobbyjon Bauman, are teaming up to bring to the community what they describe as a “powerful one-man play” titled “Bonhoeffer in Prison.” It will be presented on Saturday at the Sycamore Youth and Community Center, located at 301 N. Fourth St., Steubenville, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 artist circle (front row), $10 adult general admission and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased with a credit/debit card at eventbrite.com or call Bauman at (608) 556-3068 to pick up tickets at the Sycamore Center.A synopsis of the play notes, “”In the darkness of his prison cell, Nazi resistor and pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer battles his isolation and fear in this powerful one-man show. In April 1943 German pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer is arrested and put in prison by the Gestapo. One year later he sits awake in the middle of the night, waiting thinking. As he awaits his possible execution or release, he must confront his past and the decisions that have lead him into this small cell and away from everyone he loves.”
