by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2017

In Roger Grunwald's THE OBLIGATION a Jewish-American comedian, a survivor, a half-Jewish German soldier and an SS General explore the dark history of their and our world. Through drama and humor, Grunwald explores little-known aspects of The Holocaust and the post-war survivor experience and asks: Who decides what culture, race and ethnicity mean? What is identity? Why do we demonize "the other"?  THE OBLIGATION is a dramatic reminder of the importance of heeding the lessons of The Holocaust and of the dangers facing society when we acquiesce in the face of prejudice and hatred. The World Premiere of THE OBLIGATION, written & performed by Roger Grunwald is presented by The Mitzvah Project and PlayGround running October 12-November 5, 2017(Press Night Saturday October 14) at the Potrero Stage 1695 18th Street in San Francisco.
