WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Jews are not a race, you know. They can look like anybody." Arthur Miller's largely forgotten masterpiece about Jewish registration in Nazi occupied France burns with a terrifying topical intensity. In the detention room of a Vichy police station in 1942, eight men have been picked up for questioning but none are told why they are held, or when they can leave. At first, their hopeful guess is that only their identity papers will be checked - but as each man is removed for interrogation, some are set free, some are never seen again, and the stakes rise for those who remain... A haunting examination of the cold, bureaucratic efficiency of evil - and the shared humanity that might overcome it.
