Hitler on the Roof

A black comedy in which Dr. Joseph Goebbels and filmmaker Leni Riefenstahi are doomed to a perpetual afterlife where they must confront their pasts. Locked deep down inside the present-day Führerbunker, the two engage in cunning feats of denial, manipulation, and pure slapstick. Written during an alarming rise of Danish Nationalism in 2011, this play is a timely reminder of the consequences of selling lies as truth and propaganda as art.
