Tom Jacobson’s shattering comedy, ‘Walking to Buchenwald’

Buy Tickets

World premiere of Walking to Buchenwald — A protean comedy with shattering consequences. When Schiller and Arjay take Schiller’s parents to Europe, both couples learn what it means to be American in a world that no longer admires the U.S. Guinea pigs playing cricket, dead bodies that talk and an unexpected trip to a concentration camp lead to a shocking yet poignant conclusion. In a stroke of non-gender specific casting that dramatically illustrates the extent to which acting can change a story, two women alternate with two men in the roles of Schiller and Arjay.
