Two Plays, by Armand Gatti
These plays, two of the most notable by French/Monaco writers Armand Gatti, consider moments in time fraught with social and political meaning for all time. The first, concerning the aftermath of the Holocaust, questions truth, loyalty, and the future as well as a host of other issues that surround the despair and emptiness of lost lives. The second centers on the trial of Sacco and Vanzetti the Italian-American anarchists executed for murder and robbery in 1927. These plays, large in scope and thematic range, reveal, for the first time to the English-language audience, the powerful force of Gatti’s drama.
