The Hermit and The Chariot
Written and performed by Molly Tollefson
The Hermit & The Chariot was originally intended as a 10-minute piece to be performed once, which turned out to be a little ambitious considering the harrowing story. Molly Tollefson’s great-grandmother, Greta, fled Nazi-invaded Austria in 1939, narrowly rescuing her family from imprisonment and certain death. In The Hermit & The Chariot, Greta comes back from the dead to discuss Molly's nebulous 20’s, what it means to be hopeful during the unhopefulest of times, and the Holocaust over a tarot reading.
