Incident at Vichy - A Civic Ensemble Staged Reading

  • The Kitchen Theatre 417 W State St Ithaca, NY, 14850 United States (map)

Directed by Beth Milles

“Incident at Vichy” by Arthur Miller is a one-act play about a group of ten men detained by German officers during World War II upon suspicion of being Jewish. As these men begin to understand why they have been detained, they begin to react with fear and anger, yet none try to escape. “Incident at Vichy” offers a view of why the Nazis were able to perpetrate the Holocaust for so long due to denial and complicity.
