Chicago Shakespeare Theater presents Peter Weiss'
The Investigation, performed by the Urwintore Ensemble from Rwanda as part of CST's World's Stage Series.
The play was one of the earliest theatrical responses to the Holocaust and has been performed throughout the world for more than 40 years. Dorcy Rugamba, director of The Investigation and founder of the Urwintore ensemble, has edited the script with Isabelle Gyselinx into a riveting 80-minute adaptation performed by a Rwandan and Congolese cast. The re-imagined work draws startling parallels about human complicity between the 1994 Rwandan conflict and the atrocities of the Holocaust.
