A Civic Ensemble Staged Reading
Directed by Beth Milles
Monday, July 27th
at the Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca, NY
Civic Ensemble presents “Incident at Vichy” by Arthur Miller – a one-act play about a group of men detained by German officers during World War II upon suspicion of being Jewish. As the men begin to understand why they have been detained, they begin to react with fear and anger, yet none try to escape. “Incident at Vichy” offers a view of why the Nazis were able to perpetrate the Holocaust for so long due to denial and complicity.
In Vichy, France in 1942, eight men and a boy are seized by the collaborationist authorities and made to wait in a building that may be a police station. Some of them are Jews. All of them have something to hide – if not from the Nazis, then from their fellow detainees and, inevitably, from themselves. In this claustrophobic antechamber to the death camps, everyone is guilty, and perhaps none more so than those who can walk away alive.
