Hitler on the Roof
Strawdog Theatre Company
Chicago, IL
Share this event:

Akvavit Theatre presents the US premiere of Hitler on the Roof by Rhea Leman, a play for two clowns. This prescient Danish play finds the Nazi propagandist Dr. Joseph Goebbels and filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl doomed to a perpetual afterlife in which to confront their pasts. Locked deep down inside the present day F├╝hrerbunker, the two engage in cunning feats of denial, manipulation, and pure slapstick.

Written during an alarming rise of Danish Nationalism in 2011, this play is a timely reminder of the consequences of selling lies as truth and propaganda as art.  A favorite of audiences and critics alike, Hitler On The Roofs original production toured Denmark for two years with the company Folketeatret, winning the prestigious Reumert award for Best Leading Actress.
The English language version is scheduled to tour Europe in 2017, Akvavit is proud to present its US premiere.

Co-Directed by Artistic Director Kirstin Franklin* and Associate Amber Robinson*

Starring Amy Gorelow as Dr. Joseph Goebbels and Jay Torrence as Leni Reifenstahl.
