From Kirkus Reviews:
"A debut play about the horrors of the Holocaust, the weight of memory, and the compulsion to remember.
On April 11, 1987, the world-famous author and Auschwitz survivor Primo Levi tumbled from an apartment landing and died . . . Nobel Prize-winner and fellow survivor Elie Wiesel famously said of Levi’s passing that he perished 'at Auschwitz, forty years later.' Here, Davidson offers a troubling and moving new play that tries to explain the paradox of that epitaph. On one level, the play takes place on the last day of Levi’s life . . . Davidson seems quite aware of how difficult it is to put such abstract ideas onstage, and he writes in a foreword that the only option is 'to create a new, unique way of staging a theatrical production.' (One can’t help but think of similar statements by Tony Kushner, whose groundbreaking Angels in America presented producers with a raft of similar challenges.) Indeed, this hugely ambitious play is remarkably hard to imagine in production . . . The labors necessary to mount it seem enormous—but perhaps they’re necessary for such an aspirant work. As Davidson writes, 'Dialogue alone cannot portray Auschwitz,' so one certainly hopes that this engaging piece will indeed make it from page to stage one day.
Demanding, essential theater." - Kirkus Reviews
