Weisman and Copperface [Weisman und Rotgesicht: ein jüdischer Western]


Subtitled “A Jewish Western,” the farce’s leading characters are a Holocaust survivor and a Native American. The two are cantankerous curmudgeons who debate relative suffering and victimhood. The play is clearly influenced by Hollywood’s classic westerns and film spoofs of the genre.
