"Two mischievously funny black farces"
Two lacerating dark satires by the influential mid-to-late century Hungarian émigré playwright George Tabori. First produced in Vienna in 1987, MEIN KAMPF centers on the budding friendship between a young Adolf Hitler (trying to apply to art school in Vienna) and his roommate, a Jewish Bible salesman, who, in a stroke of genius, suggests Hitler get into politics. In the rarely seen JUBILEE (first produced in Bochum, Germany in 1983), a neo–Nazi youth bent on defacing Jewish headstones is visited by a Jewish family and a gay couple, who find deliciously sinister ways to goad the miscreant to move on.
