About this show

Inspired by the true story of the elaborate deception that took place at the Theresienstadt concentration camp, where the Nazis constructed a fake village to fool international inspectors and quell extermination rumors. Juan Mayorga's startlingly original play begins years after the fact with an account by the Red Cross employee who was there, then leaps backward in time to show the creation and rehearsal of another very unusual play, one in which the Jewish prisoners are assigned roles and given lines to say to inspectors passing by. The production, a New York Times, Backstage and NYTheatre Critics' Pick, will be presented in English with live simultaneous Spanish-language translation available.
