SUMMARY

As a group of male Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz Concentration Camp wait to discover their fate of either hard labour or death, they decide to try the person they believe is most responsible for the atrocities; they put God on Trial. The charge is that God has broken the covenant made with the Jewish people by allowing the Nazis to commit Genocide. The prisoners regain a shadow of their former selves as they put forward their arguments, and fundamental questions are raised about religion, morality and the purpose of human existence. The journey to a verdict leads us through the Jewish faith and the personal experiences of the prisoners. This intense, dramatic play promises to be a challenging and powerful piece of theatre where reason and emotion collide in an atmosphere of desperation and despair.
