About the Play

McCutcheon High School students first presented Life in a Jar in 2009 and collaborated with some of the original cast members in 2011 to present Life in a Jar at the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis—an unprecedented production combining the original cast and students from another high school. As a result of the collaboration, Norm Conard invited the McCutcheon students to tour the Midwest to present Irena’s story. With a rotating group of students who are committed to help repair the world, the McCutcheon cast, Life in a Jar’s “second generation,” has presented in several areas of Indiana.

This presentation is open to the public. Voluntary donations to the Life in a Jar Foundation to benefit the elderly in Poland who risked their lives to save Jewish children will be appreciated.
