"A Good Jew" (Lewes) by Something Underground Theatre Co.
Something Underground Present
A Good Jew
Sol and Hilda play together. In the Frankfurt Sinfonietta to be exact, and Sol loves Hilda and Hilda loves Sol. So what?Well Hildas father is a Nazi chief on his way to becoming a camp Commandant, and Sol is of course A Jew, the heir to the Goldberg family Torah, and a young man at odds with his own religion. As the Goldberg family is scattered by war and deportation, Sols mother gives him fatal advice. Survive. At all costs
Taking her word to its limit, Sol relinquishes his roots, his love, his art, his baby sister Anya, and his humanity, to stay out of the tireless Nazi furnaces.
Can Hilda, by herself becoming a Jew, find him and Anya and save them from the jaws of hell? Or has Sol already entered and made himself at home?
