The Camp

Author(s): Michael McKeever
The play is set in Germany in the immediate aftermath of World War II. Its title refers to the remnants of a concentration camp on the outskirts of a small village, whose elders—so-called “good Germans”—looked the other way while the Holocaust commenced beside them. The play addresses the complicity of average citizens during the rise of Fascism.
