Online Serbian Play: Two Women and One War

THE SERB NATIONAL FEDERATION IS PROUD TO SPONSOR THE ONLINE SERBIAN PLAY "TWO WOMEN AND ONE WAR" WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

The Serb National Federation is pleased to recommend you to watch online the outstanding theatre performance Two Women and One War with Serbian actresses Marija Bergam and Vera Mujović in the leading roles. The performance describes the friendship between the Serbian and American people through the love story of two women who are forgotten heroines of the Great War.

One is an American woman, Mabel Grujić, who is married to Serbian diplomat Slavko Grujić. Another is a Serbian woman, Jelena Lozanić, married to the Serbian people's most generous American benefactor, John Frothingham. They both have two homelands: Serbia and the United States.

In this play, you can discover why Mabel Grujić was nicknamed the Serbian Jovanka Orleanka; how many woolen socks for Serbian soldiers at the front were knitted by rich American women from high society; and who adopted 600 children in one day.

Mabel, along with Mihajlo I. Pupin, built homes for Serbian orphans and mobilized American physicians to come to Serbia and help their colleagues.

Jelena Lozanić, Representative of the Yugoslav Red Cross from 1915 to 1920, had a great humanitarian mission to the United States to collect funds for the Serbian Army and people. She met her greatest love, John Frothingham. He donated to Serbia in value almost four Serbian national budgets from 1915.

Jelena Kajgo wrote the text of the play, and the director is Alek Conic.

The performance is with English subtitles.

By buying an online ticket for the play Two Women and One War, you can also watch another famous theatre play for free, Little Black Dress. The performance is about the life of the renowned fashion icon Coco Chanel played by some of the greatest Serbian actresses Rada Djuričin and Vjera Mujović.

The ticket price is $16.00.

ПОД ПОКРОВИТЕЉСТВОМ СРПСКОГ НАРОДНОГ САВЕЗА

ПОГЛЕДАЈТЕ СРПСКУ ПОЗОРИШНУ ПРЕДСТАВУ НА ИНТЕРНЕТУ „ДВЕ ЖЕНЕ И ЈЕДАН РАТ“

Српски народни савез Вам препоручује да погледате онлајн представу Две жене и један рат са Маријом Бергам и Вером Мујовић у главним улогама. Ова позоришна представа говори о пријатељству српског и америчког народа кроз љубавну причу две жене – заборављене хероине Великог рата.

Једна је американка – Мабел Грујић, удата за српског дипломату Славка Грујића, а друга је српкиња – Јелена Лозанић, удата за највећег америчког доброчинитеља српског народа Џона Фротингама. Обе имају две домовине: Србију и Америку.

Откријте зашто су Мабел прозвали српском Јованком Орлеанком, колико вунених чарапа су богате американке из високог друштва исплеле за српске војнике на фронту и ко је усвојио 600 деце у једном дану.

Мабел је заједно са Михајлом Пупином градила домове за напуштену српску сирочад и мобилисала америчке лекаре да дођу у Србију и помагну својим колегама у болницама.

Јелена Лозанић као представница југословенског Црвеног крста, током рата, од 1915. до 1920. године, одлази у велику хуманитарну мисију у Америку где сакупља новац за српску војску и изнемогао народ. Тамо упознаје Џона Фротингама своју највећу љубав. Џон Фротингам је заборављени амерички добротвор који је поклонио Србији у виду донација износ од чак четири државна буџета наше земље из 1915. године.

Представа је рађена по тексту Јелене Кајго и у режији Алека Цонића.

Представа је урађена са енглеским титловима.

Купујући онлајн карте за представу „Две жене и један рат,“ бесплатно можете погледати још једну представу „Мала црна хаљина“ о животу славне Коко Шанел.

Обе представе по цени једне карте нуде задовољство и уживање за целу породицу.

Након куповине карте путем интернета, обе представе можете погледати у наредних седам дана од куповине карте колико важи Ваш линк.

Куповином карте подржавате рад Музеја историје, уметности и дипломатије Дома Јеврема Грујића (www.domjevremagrujica.com) и реализацију пројекта „Великани српске историје.“

Обе музејске представе су посебно прилагођене онлајн формату, како би се бар мало надоместила немогућност гостовања српских уметничких ансамбала широм Америке.

Цена улазнице је 1.500 динара.

Хвала вам што подржавате културну и уметничку сцену Србије!

Te Right Reverend Dr. Firmilian, Bishop of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Midwestern America, was born on the Feast of the Nativity of Christ, according to the Julian Calendar, on the 7th of January 1910. Born into a clerical family in Kaona, Serbia, he was the son of many generations of priests, specifically, born in the family of the protopresbyter Uros Ocokoljich and his mother, Darinka, nee Plazinic, also the daughter of a priest. To the delight of this family, the parents were blessed with the birth of twins, named at baptism, Stanko (later, Firmilian) and Ranko. Stanko was the tenth child.
