WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Lemkin's House is set in the afterlife of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish-American lawyer whose family died in the Holocaust and who invented the word "genocide." He dedicated his life to the fight to have genocide declared an international crime. Lemkin is bombarded by people bursting into his home with complaints of more recent genocides in Rwanda and Bosnia. Lemkin must recognize that even his law is not enough to change the world. He weighs his ethical accomplishments against his guilt for deserting his own doomed family ultimately seeking not only justice but also forgiveness. In Lemkin's House, it's the dead who are haunted by the living. The play is written by Catherine Filloux, and directed by Jean Randich.
