A gothic American tragedy from Adam Rapp, the celebrated writer of many critically acclaimed plays. Trueblinka's frighteningly realistic and accurate depiction of extreme religious zeal contrasts with the poetic, literary nature of Rapp's articulate and insightful dialogue. The production is directed by Anthony Moseley, Collaboraction's executive artistic director.
God-fearing matriarch Rilthe Klieg rules her family and their ceramic crucifix business with fanatical zeal. But when religious supplies salesman Lorenzo Smallwood enters the shuttered home and meets the Klieg children, his presence triggers their rebellion. The terrible secrets exposed by the revolt rock the Klieg home all the way from the fiery basement kiln to the hidden attic bedroom.
