Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book describes and analyzes theater productions performed in Israel, America, Poland, France, Italy and Germany that deal with the Holocaust. The collected essays trace the development of the realistic/documentary stagings of the 1950s-1970s through to today's very controversial avant-garde shows. This is the first book that deals with Holocaust plays "in performance," and provides many previously unpublished drawings and documents, as well as an important descriptive bibliography.

Synopsis:

This book considers Holocaust plays 'in performance' and the legitimacy of presenting the Holocaust on the stage.
