A Terrible Truth: Anthology of Holocaust Drama, Volume 1
We look to the theatre to illuminate, to challenge, and to bring spiritual understanding and consolation. Theatre, at its best, embraces, enlightens, entertains, and makes us question how we live and die. The plays in this anthology share a common thread, the triumph of theatre to make us ask questions. To restore meaning and bring insight to the memory of a terrible truth.Includes:Good by C.P. Taylor None is Too Many by Jason Sherman Playing for Time by Arthur Miller Still the Night by Theresa Tova The Trials of John Demjanjuk by Jonathan Garfinkel
