    Welcome to Madame Sara Joel’s French class. Sara teaches you correct pronunciation and a lot more. She had a flirtatious mother, a jealous father, and then there were the Nazis who threatened their very existence. How did they survive? By learning to play a very special game–a game that saved her life. After that, how difficult can French vowels be?

    I performed this monologue and it was a huge success…The play demonstrates the ingenuity and resilience of people living under an extremely stressful situation…It is a very serious play but at the same time, it is uplifting. Sara deserves our admiration. – C. Miller

    An international award-winning monologue!

      i performed this monologue on Sunday , December 5, 2021, at our Retirement Village with about 120 people in the audience . It was part of our Christmas program and followed an original skit about 3 American GIs celebrating the liberation of Paris in WWII. This set the mood and fit right in . The monologue was a huge success. I lived in the Netherlands as a young child during WWII and was able to convey the message of the horrors of the Nazi regime . The play also demonstrates the ingenuity and resilience of people living under extremely stressful situation . To me this play was an excellent way to educate everyone about the risks of history repeating itself in our current lives. Among our current frictions and despair , there is hope for the future .
      It is a very serious play but at the same time uplifting , Sara deserves our admiration .
