In Search of Justice

July 27, 2008
A short play by Bertolt Brecht
Directed by Glenn Havlan

This compelling play is about a German judge in the early years of the Nazi regime who must decide a case of assault, charged against S.S. thugs who have beaten a Jewish shopkeeper. It is complicated by many factors; an incomplete police report, conflicting motives of concerned parties, unreliable testimonies and the political pressure of an increasingly totalitarian state. It is a kind of ‘prequel’ to our April 2007 production of Judgment at Nuremberg, depicting the environment that created the defendants of that story.

Performed at
The San Francisco Theater Festival
