What the playwright Michelle Kholos Brooks has successfully done is meld that past horror with the current political climate (and culture) in America to create a shape-shifting presentation of the 1940’s, spray- painted by 2018.”

It's such a great essay on the banality of evil and how people sign up to do evil as long as it serves their purpose. And I also found myself to be extremely entertained.”

The ALL FEMALE Hitler's Tasters Company

Three times a day, every day, a group of young women have the opportunity to die for their country. They are Adolf Hitler's food tasters. Using an anachronistic retelling of a historical footnote, and stretching from the WWII era to today’s autocracy, the play asks us to consider what girls discuss as they wait to see if they will live through another meal.

Winner of the 2017 Glaspell Award.
