WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fabrik tells the story of Mortiz Rabinowitz, a successful, immigrant, Norwegian Jew who "built a factory from a button" only to watch his life be swept away by the Holocaust. Originally from Poland he immigrated to Norway in 1911 to escape pogroms and persecution. In Haugesund, a small fishing village, he discovered a land rich with opportunity. He called it home. Poor but determined, he eventually built one of the largest clothing companies in the country, with department stores in several cities and his own factory. Although wealthy and a leading employer and large presence in town, he experienced a good deal of anti-Semitism. He and his family were treated as outsiders, rarely invited to social events or people's homes. In his time alone in his apartment above his store, Rabinowitz avidly wrote columns for local and national newspapers, expressing his socioeconomic idea about commerce in Europe and Norway's natural resources. In time, the primary focus of his columns became warnings to his countrymen about the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. This production is appropriate for those 10 years and older, but it should also be noted that this IS NOT a CHILDREN'S SHOW - it's a theatre piece with puppets.
