Fellow Traveler: Staged reading of a new play by Peter Petschauer
Hardly a son enjoys discovering the reality of his father’s association with a criminal organization; better to leave that alone. But some pasts will not leave us alone. In this new work, historian and playwright Peter Petschauer confronts the chilling reality of his father’s stint in the SS. The fast-paced dialogue opens the mindset of this thirty-something intellectual and how he moved from enthusiasm for a cause to the undeniable recognition of its folly and brutality.
In a rare opportunity for audience members to be a part of the play development process, the audience is invited to participate in a talk-back session with the playwright, director and cast, following the performance.
