Caesar's Forum
Professional Theatre

By: Peter Weiss

Show Description:
THE INVESTIGATION is considered a seminal work of verbatim testimonies (often termed documentary drama) from the Frankfurt Trials of 1963-1965; fragmented memories, where survivors of Auschwitz faced those in charge of the camp. Weiss shapes the material into eleven "cantos" or divisions of clear, straightforward sentence structures to create a text that is literary. Although written in light of the atrocities of WWII, it is a piece that retains its cultural relevance today. Questions of ideology, religion, political/military power and societal response repeat.
