About This Show

Nossig’s Antics by Lazarre Seymour Simckes, author of Seven Days of Mourning and Ten Best Maryrs of the Year, introduces us to the enigmatic life and death of Alfred Nossig, a Polish-Jewish playwright, poet, sculptor, philosopher and Zionist advocate who, in 1943, just shy of his 80th birthday, was assassinated by the Jewish Underground in the Warsaw ghetto as a suspected Nazi collaborator. Simckes turns the complex question of Nossig’s guilt, and with it European Jewish history, into a hilarious quest, conducted by a young man who may or may not be Nossig himself, for identity and truth. Crystal Field directs.

Appropriate for audiences 10 and up.
