Star-crossed lovers, unionized laborers, a secret Jewish army, and many others become entangled by an intriguing plan to bring about significant healing from the Holocaust. Chancellor Stroiber thinks he can reduce the shame today’s Germans are forced to bear from the actions of their ancestors, but he inadvertently exposes the ugly underbelly of a world that may not be ready for profound cultural revision. Set in modern times, Israel Horowitz’s Lebensraum is a cautionary tale of what could come from reversing the ideologies of the Germanic ‘living space’. At the bidding of the playwright, inventive staging keeps this sometimes grim story forever entertaining.
