Wiesenthal - theater

One might think that a one-man play about the life of Simon Wiesenthal — legendary Holocaust survivor turned hunter of Nazi war criminals — might be a real serious affair.

However, according to Tom Dugan, writer of "Wiesenthal," the show has many humorous moments mixed in with the serious ones."

"Wiesenthal had a great sense of humor," said Dugan. "In fact, before the war he was an amateur stand-up comedian. He was not a dour man, despite the serious nature of his work. Wiesenthal's sense of humor allowed me to write the play in a way that leaves audiences with an uplifting message."

Part memoir and part spy thriller, Dugan's play introduces us to Wiesenthal on the day before his retirement as he welcomes his final group of Americans to his office in The Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna.
"With all that is going on in the world today WIESENTHAL is ever so relevant for all." Alan Jordan, director
