Monday 19th June

Mengele by Philip Wharam and Tim Marriott is a powerful exposition of one of the most notorious war criminals of all time. Dr Josef Mengele, the infamous doctor of Auschwitz, avoided prosecution after the Second World War and escaped to South America, where he lived a full life. 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.

The play was originally created with close advice and support from the Holocaust Educational Trust. Performed by Tim Marriott and Emma Zardow and with an atmospheric backdrop of cinematic images and primary evidence of the Nazis’ extermination camps, ‘Mengele’ is powerfully challenging and dynamic.

'The best way to remember it would be if people could learn from this experience... because the potential for destructiveness is in all of us' - Lydia Tichsler, Auschwitz survivor
