“Arthur Miller’s new play is set in a detention room in France in 1942. The characters are nine men and a boy who have been picked up from the streets for a reason unknown to them. As one by one they are taken offstage for interrogation, gradually the reason for their arrest becomes apparent; with one exception they are all Jews.
The action takes place on the one set in one uninterrupted act. It touches on issues such as the extent of individual German complicity in the destruction of the Jews and the special nature of German anti-semitism, but it’s major theme is that lately brought to light by Hannah Arendt: how far did the Jews consent in their own annihilation?”
Overall Condition – Very good.
