By Juan Mayorga - Directed by Matthew Earnest

Presented in English (live simultaneous Spanish-language translation available)

A production of Equilicuá Producciones & Puy Navarro. Presented by Repertorio Español

“A perversely theatrical chapter of the Holocaust is hauntingly re-enacted in Juan Mayorga’s play ‘Way to Heaven,’ about the sham Jewish settlement at Theresienstadt, or Terezin, in what is now the Czech Republic, set up by the Nazis to persuade observers that Jews were held in humane conditions. A makebelieve utopia, Theresienstadt (the German name) was an effective propaganda tool. In reality, it was a concentration camp, and a way station leading to Auschwitz and other death camps. This spare, eloquent work, leanly directed by Matthew Earnest, is a powerful illustration of how theatrical artifice can be pressed into the service of atrocity.”
- Andy Webster, The New York Times

“A striking play...” - The London Times

Smart, riveting, an immensely powerful and important play.” - Julie Congress, Reviewer’s Pick

“Mayorga’s play emphasises starkly the propensity of human beings to blind themselves to the fate of their fellow creatures.” - The London Times

“Juan Mayorga’s stunning play brings it all home” - Richard McBee, The Jewish Press

“Francisco Reyes' performance as the Commandant is breathtaking.” - Leonard Jacobs, Backstage Critics’ Pick
