The Chosen Ones

Author(s): Cheri Magid
1939 Germany. Felix Kersten, a doctor of Chinese medicine, a hedonist and a womanizer, has just been tricked into becoming Heinrich Himmler’s private doctor. What do you do when your world becomes a drama of life and death but all you can think of is that someone has dropped you into the darkest of comedies? You can make very bad and potentially deadly jokes. You can become a spy. Or you can focus on your mistress—but that may be most dangerous of all. The Chosen Ones is a play about what it means to be a good person in a world where goodness itself has been obliterated.
