About the Book:

An anthology in two separate volumes collecting plays dealing with the Holocaust.

We look to the theatre to illuminate, to challenge, and to bring spiritual understanding and consolation. Theatre, at its best, embraces, enlightens, entertains, and makes us question how we live and die. The plays in this anthology share a common thread, the triumph of theatre to make us ask questions. To restore meaning and bring insight to the memory of a terrible truth.

A Terrible Truth, Volume I: Anthology of Holocaust Drama includes: Albert Speer by David Edgar; Ghetto by Joshua Sobol; Rose by Martin Sherman; Z: a meditation on oppression, desire & freedom by Anne Szumigalski; and Sammy's Follies: A Criminal Comedy by Eugene Lion.
