New York City
Pure evil hides itself in a small American town when an escaped Nazi official adopts a new identity and marries into one of America’s most prominent families; until an obsessed stranger arrives to flush out his true identity. The only one who can help—and one of the only people to know his horrifying secret—is the woman who loves him.
Noir in tone, fatalistic in nature, and full of rage and horror at the loss and waste of war, The Stranger grapples with the moral elements of the
most pivotal event of the 20th Century, as the shadow of Hitler’s awful plan for the annihilation of an entire people hovers over this nerve-wracking spy thriller. Horse Trade Theater Group & DMTheatrics present director Frank Cwiklik’s adaptation of the 1946 motion picture, created by Orson Welles.
