Mein Uncle, an absurdist fairytale about the seeds of inhumanity
"Impressive... deeply compelling... the writing is chilling... a richly textured play"
-- Talkin' Broadway

3V Theatre presents its first full length production  Mein Uncle written and directed by Co-Artistic Director Aliza Shane.

Based on the true story of Geli Raubal, niece to the most infamous villain in history, Mein Uncle is a love story, ruled by mystery, obsession and ultimately, madness. Mein Uncle is a tale of love gone terribly wrong, an absurdist look at the bizarre secret relationship that influenced the man behind the darkest event of the 20th century.

The production stars Emilie Bienne, Ashley Lovell, Amanda Marikar, Judy Molner, Eric Percival, Rachel Pfennigwerth, Jordan Tierney and Jennifer Lynn Tune.

Assistant Director Laura Hirschberg; AD/SMs Heesuk Chae and Allanda "Al" Lattin. Light design by Ryan Metzler. Costume design by Matsy Stinson.

Running time approximately 90 minutes.

ANGELA MARIA "GELI" RAUBAL (June 4, 1908  September 18, 1931) was Adolf Hitler's niece. Born in Linz, Austria-Hungary, she was the second child of Hitler's half-sister, Angela Raubal. Hitler had a special place in his heart for Geli and kept a tight rein over her, restricting her activities and her contact with the outside world. It was rumored that they were lovers. On the morning of September 19, 1931, members of Hitler's staff found Geli Raubal dead from a gunshot wound to the lung in her room in Hitler's Munich apartment. The official cause of death was listed as suicide. Hermann Göring, a leading member of the Nazi Party, would later state at the Nuremberg trials that Geli's death had devastated Hitler to such an extent that it changed his views and relationships with all other people.

Official Nazi photographer Heinrich Hoffmann said of Geli's death: "That was when the seeds of inhumanity began to grow inside Hitler."

From playwright/director Aliza Shane: "My entire life I've lived with the history of the Holocaust and its devastating effects on the world, the Jews, and my own family. The idea of exploring Adolf Hitler and his relationships is not something I ever addressed. However, after learning about Geli Raubal, I became fascinated with her story; how her life, and death, affected this man, and changed his life, ultimately for the worse. The more I read, the more I realized that this is a story that needed to be told. This is not a story that 'explains' or excuses Hitler or his actions  rather, it's a microscopic look at a relationship that may have been the last straw in a life already set on a path of destruction."

This is the first show of its kind; the first show to attempt to explore the complex relationship between Hitler and Geli. A forgotten figure in history, Geli Raubal, and her death, may have been more important to history than we know.
