1942. A make-shift detention room in Vichy, France, holds ten men who have been picked up for questioning. Why are they there? What have they done? America’s preeminent playwright, Arthur Miller, expertly weaves the fears, uncertainty and self-denial of a disparate group awaiting an unspeakable fate, into a masterwork of hope and survival.
“One of the most important plays of our time ‘Incident at Vichy’ returns the theatre to greatness.” —New York Times
“Nevertheless, this production, directed by Scott Alan Evans with clarity and compassion and acted by a first-rate troupe of committed character actors, should go a considerable way towards a positive reassessment of the work….” —TheaterMania
