“Puppetmaster” at Pantagleize

Posted April 27, 2010 by Jimmy Fowler in Blotch

It seems like every conceivable dramatic angle to the Holocaust has been used in plays, movies, and documentaries. They often involve a well-meaning but somewhat unlikely “triumph of the human spirit.” What does a victim of Hitler’s genocidal project do when he survives a concentration camp but discovers that the horrors in his memory continue to twist his reality? Pantagleize Theatre Company presents Gilles Segal’s little-performed The Puppetmaster of Lodz, about a survivor who lives in a tiny room and refuses to believe Hitler has been defeated. Pantagleize’s production – which stars its first Equity actor, Bill Jenkins — runs just four performances (Apr 29-May 2) at East Fort Worth Montessori Academy.
