Hitler On The Roof

Akvavit Theatre presents the remount 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 Führerbunker, 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 take it on tour in the US.
