Reunion at the New Theatre, Dublin
This is a story of two sixteen year old boys and their time together in the early 1930s at Karl Alexander Gymnasium in Stuttgart, as narrated 40 years later by Hans Schwartz, a now successful German-American Jewish lawyer. Having been asked to contribute to a memorial to his former classmates who died during the Second World War, Hans revists the story of his school friendship in the early days of Hitler’s rise and growing anti-semitism.
This is a nice play, with a story that grips you and a poignant and surprising end. Good for people who like history; the Holocaust; mis-lit; or just a good story, told well.
And if you haven’t been before, the New Theatre is a great theatre experience.
Reunion runs for 3 weeks from 8 to 27 November 2010, nightly at 8pm, in the New Theatre (back of Connolly’s bookshop), 43 East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2. Tickets €10, €12 & €15. To book call 01 6703361 or email email@example.com.
