In Quest of Conscience

Robert David MacDonald
 
Based on the book Into that Darkness by Gitta Sereny, this is a record for the theatre of harrowing interviews with Treblinka concentration camp Kommandant, Herr Stangl, who speaks with horrifying banality about his part in the Nazi extermination machine.

Review
Plays such as  In Quest of Conscience  are messengers of the unspeakable, which is why they should be listened to as this powerful, dignified piece was in complete moral silence. - John Peter, The Sunday Times

Macdonald: Plays 1

Summit Conference / Chinchilla /Summit Conference / Chinchilla / Webster

Robert David MacDonald
 
MacDonald has created imaginary worlds — stylish, witty and frightening. A fictitious meeting between the mistresses of Hitler and Mussolini; the backstage world of the playwright John Webster; and the rarified atmosphere of the Diaghilev ballet.

Salto Mortale
Takes the audience by tortuous route to the circus

Persons Unknown
