About this show

The Puppetmaster of Lodz, set in Berlin in 1950, is both a mystery story and a portrait of a noble man. Samuel Finkelbaum is a master puppeteer who has locked himself in an attic apartment and has remained there ever since his escape from a concentration camp. He is patiently awaiting the end of World War II, and nothing his landlady tells him will convince him that it's safe to come out. Inside this retreat, he creates a fantasy world with his puppets-and so unfolds an unforgettable tale of love and creativity.
