“Korczak’s Children” by Jeffrey Hatcher
This gripping drama is set during World War II in Nazi-occupied Poland. It tells the story of Dr. Janusz Korczak and his Warsaw orphanage as he tries to save the lives of 200 Jewish boys and girls.

“The Farnsworth Invention” by Aaron Sorkin
It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy? The answer comes to compelling life in The Farnsworth Invention, the play from Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing.
