The play "Who Will Carry the Word?" will be performed as a readers' theater play 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, at the First United Methodist Church, 1165 NW Monroe Ave., Corvallis.

The production is part of Oregon State University's Holocaust Memorial Week.

The drama is by Charlotte Delbo, a member of the French Resistance who spent time in German concentration camps, particularly Auschwitz and Ravensbrück. The play is set in a death camp and follows the tribulations of a group of women prisoners.

"Who Will Carry the Word?" is being directed by Charlotte Headrick, an Oregon State University professor emerita of theater arts. Headrick, a strong advocate of Holocaust education, created a course on the Holocaust in drama and directed more than a half-dozen plays that were produced in association with Holocaust Memorial Week.

The play is free and open to the public.
