THE OBLIGATION by Roger Grunwald Directed by Nancy Carlin

With drama & humor, The Obligation asks: Who decides what culture, race and ethnicity mean? What is identity? Why do we demonize "the other"?
Thurs & Sun, Roger Grunwald hosts post show talk-backs.

A Jewish-American comedian, an Auschwitz survivor, a half-Jewish German soldier and an SS General explore the dark history of their/our world in the theatrical premiere of The Obligation, a one-person show written by and starring Roger Grunwald and under the direction of Nancy Carlin. Through drama and humor, The Obligation explores little-known aspects of The Holocaust and the post-war survivor experience and asks: Who decides what culture, race and ethnicity mean? What is identity? Why do we demonize "the other"?

The play's central story revolves around the life of Schmuel Berkowicz, a Polish Jew from Bialystok. It's a story of innocence and boyhood crushes - survival and liberation. In addition to Schmuel and the SS officer, the play's two other main characters are Christoph Rosenberg, a German half-Jew who was a First Lieutenant in Hitler's army and The Chorus, a Groucho Marx-esque American-Jewish comedian-cum-social critic who leavens the drama by probing the boundary between the absurd and the horrific.

On Thursdays and Sundays, following the performance, Roger Grunwald will host talk-backs to dialogue with the audience about the play and its meaning in today's world.

Time: 8:00 pm - 2:00 pm.
