This play covers the last few days of the life of German dissident theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer had previously stood up to the Nazis and been told to stop giving public lectures. He did not and was arrested. After several months in prison, a letter was found by the Gestapo tying him into a plot to have Adolf Hitler assassinated, and he was moved to Flossenburg Maximum Security Prison and condemned to death by hanging.
This theatrical production is brought to the stage by a renowned director (and co-producer), Alan Baxter. It is an extremely important work because it addresses current and provocative themes, such as the present world fascination and support of fascism and far-right politics, the rising racism against ethnic groups manifested by attacks against, and police brutality of African Americans and the worldwide rise of antisemitism.
