Annula: An Autobiography


Based on an actual interaction the author had with a Holocaust survivor, the play is structured as an interview, with the survivor responding to questions from the voice of the interviewer. The drama chronicles the remembered experiences of Annulla Allen, a Polish Jew who married an Austrian Jew, survived in Germany by convincing authorities she was Aryan, was able to persuade the Nazis to release her husband from Dachau, and, after the war, moved to London.
