Mein Kampf

A grotesque style comedy, which takes place in Vienna in the years before the First World War and dramatizes Hitler’s life in a men’s hostel. The play comedically represents his failed career as an artist and the development of his early anti-Semitism and his ironic relationship with a Jewish Bible salesman, Schlomo Herzl, who thinks he is protetecting Hitler from Death, when she is really coming to anoint him as her earthly leader.
