Tom Dugan's award-winning one-man play Wiesenthal: The Conscience of the Holocaust has been hailed by audiences and critics alike as "masterful" (Backstage), "authoritative and engaging" (LA Times), and "eloquent" (LA Weekly). With warmth, wit and surprising humor, Wiesenthal recounts the remarkable story of how, after cheating death at the hands of Hitler's dreaded S.S, Simon Wiesenthal dedicated his life to tracking down and bringing to justice the greatest mass murderers in human history.
Set on the day of his retirement, the famed "Nazi Hunter" Simon Wiesenthal welcomes one final group of students to his Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna, Austria where, while packing up his files, he recounts how he solved his most sensational cases. Packed with the punch of gripping spy thriller, Dugan brings this powerful tale to life in performance that "creates pure theatrical magic" (Stage and Cinema ). Winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award and three L.A. Ovation Award Nominations, Wiesenthal (written by and starring Tom Dugan, directed by Jenny Sullivan) chronicles the life of the "Jewish James Bond" who became internationally famous his relentless pursuit of such notorious villains as Adolf Eichmann, Franz Stangl, Dr. Josef Mengele and the SS officer who imprisoned Anne Frank. Don't miss the exciting South Florida premiere as Wiesenthal transports us into the heart of the Nazi atrocities and one man's relentless quest to right humanity's wrongs.
