The Nazi Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels and his wife Magda, a model spouse and mother in the Germany of the Third Reich, consider their future together and re-examine their ideology and actions and their place in history, giving a harsh personal account of the rise and fall of Hitler’s worldview...
Describing the stage-managed death of the Goebbels family, Veltsos’s play talks about what modern culture cannot suppress: the overriding arrogance of mankind, the pleasure of violence, the rhetoric of domination and hate, and everything else that characterises the “radical evil” that seizes the human imagination and can be detected within ourselves irrespective of race or nation.
