The Table

Author(s):

The author of The Table comments that her play “is a protest against the law which tries genocide according to the code intended for trivial crimes.” In Fink's drama, a prosecutor is preparing four witnesses to testify about killings by the Gestapo. None of the witnesses can agree about specific details regarding the murders but agree that many were killed on a specific day. Because the prosecutor cannot present witnesses who can identify specific members of the Gestapo nor agree on all of the details, he cannot, according to the letter of the law, gain a conviction.
