Professional Theatre

By: Jordan Harrison

Show Description:
Inspired by the life and work of Leni Riefenstahl (Hitler's cinematographer). The Frau used to direct beautiful films for a fascist government. Now she's trying to make a film that's simply beautiful. The Frau casts herself in the lead role of the Amazon queen Penthesilea, who falls in love with Achilles on the battlefield of the Trojan War. She recruits a man from the Jewish ghetto to play her Achilles. The movie's Achilles, however, is falling for the young man who keeps bringing the Frau telegrams from her friends in the Fascist government, on the verge of starting a war. And the Frau's sister, a recurring extra in her films whose specialty is dying on camera, is trying to get her to wake up to the ominous goings-on in the world.
