Simon Wiesenthal was a Jewish Holocaust survivor who became internationally famous for relent- lessly pursuing and bringing nearly 1,100 Nazi war criminals to justice. Tom Dugan captures the essence of this extraordinary man in the context of Holocaust history as well as the legacy he left behind. The book is based on Dugan’s one-man play and includes the entire off-Broadway production playscript of this riveting drama and a complete study guide, production photographs and book club questions.
Dugan will read several pieces from the script during his presentation as he did earlier this year when he spoke about the book on Zoom. The feedback from everyone was that they would love to see him present this in person, and now residents will get a Dugan doubleheader with Tevye in New York! (one-man show presented the night before) and Wiesenthal.
Dugan was dubbed “A National Treasure” by critics for the past 20 years. His one-man plays have thrilled audiences and have been the subject of many PBS programs throughout North America.
