Cathedral of Ice


Influenced by the playwright having been in Germany during Kristallnacht, the highly theatrical play conflates many historic atrocities, such as the destruction of Native Americans, and totalitarian rulers with the Holocaust and Hitler. The allegorical characters of Night and Fog, the euphemism the Nazis used to order the disappearance of so-called enemies of the state, represent the victims of the Holocaust.
