Smokescreen Productions present
by Philip Wharam & Tim Marriott

A powerful exposition of one of the most notorious war criminals of all time. 1979, on a beach in Brazil, a drowning man is washed ashore and forced to face his past.
This provocative new drama imagines him on the beach where he ultimately had a stroke whilst swimming and sees him brought ashore by an enigmatic local woman, who cajoles, questions and finally confronts him.

Created with close advice and support from the Holocaust Educational Trust, Mengele is powerfully challenging and dynamic with an atmospheric backdrop of cinematic images and primary evidence of the Nazis’ extermination camps. 

This event is held at the Sitting Room as part of Ludlow Fringe Festival 2017.  Tickets are £12 / £10 concession.
