WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Two plays connected by one character focusing on the lesser known true stories of Nazi Germany. In the first we meet see the relationship between well known Jewish song writer Frank Hollander and 'Putzi' Ernst Hanfstaengal, an American who helped finance Hitler's Nazi party. The first set in the cabaret club owned by Hollander takes you through the doors and to experience the music and the dancing girls of 1930's Germany including the songs of Hollander. We also learn about the lives of those dancing girls focusing on a young Polish girl, in Germany to make some money and her capture and use as a polish sex slave in the second of the two plays 'Joy Division' which was written in 2004 and has been seen at a number of UK theatres including in 2014, was selected for the RADA play festival. Set in a camp connected to one of the larger worker camps, we see the lives of Nazi sex slaves and see how some shared the same disgusting views on the Jews as their Nazi masters held.
