“Puppetmaster” at Pantagleize
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.
