PUSH

Simon Gronowski and composer Howard Moody

PUSH was written by the internationally acclaimed composer Howard Moody, and is based on the remarkable true story of Simon Gronowski. Simon’s life, by his own words, “is only miracles”, and the title refers to the desperate and courageous gesture of his mother, who saved his life by pushing him off a train to Auschwitz in 1943. The story explores the best and worst in human nature, shifting in time to consider the plight of refugees, and cycles of war and suffering. Ultimately, the piece offers hope for our capacity for healing and forgiveness, even in the most challenging times. Click here to find out more about Simon’s Story
