Read Karen Malpede’s Howlround Article on “The Necessity of a New Green Federal Theatre Project"
“We should all be glad that a challenging and intelligent solo show like Hoaxocaust! is onstage anywhere. This is worthwhile and timely theater of the highest order.” - Theatermania
“Skilfully raises questions about religion and politics with humor, earning laughs from a subject that many might think is too sacred to get such a treatment.” - Theatre Is Easy
“Uses sharp satire to pierce the gasbags… There are more controversial and provocative ideas crammed into the 70-minute Hoaxocaust! than in most plays on or off Broadway.” -Jewish Standard
“Squarely nails the inherent absurdity behind Holocaust denial.” -New Voices
Questing Beast Productions, in partnership with The Theater at the 14th Street Y, is pleased to present Barry Levey in his provocative play Hoaxocaust! directed by Jeremy Gold Kronenberg. Hoaxocaust! will play twenty three performances from September 5th through the 30th, 2018 at The Theater at the 14th Street Y (344 East 14th Street at 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10003). Opening night is Wednesday, September 12th at 8:00 P.M.
Press are cordially invited Friday, Sept 7th at 7:00 pm, Saturday, Sept 8th at 2:00 pm or 6:00 pm, Sunday, Sept 9th at 2:00 pm, and Opening Night Wednesday, Sept 12th at 8:00 pm (and any subsequent performance upon request).
What roles should past horrors play in defining ourselves, our religious views, or even our politics? Is there such a thing as a contemporary Jewish identity independent of the Holocaust? Should there be? What if the Holocaust had never happened? Mahmoud Abbas has said it. Poland has said it. Some people currently running for our Congress and in our President's coalition have said it. If the Holocaust didn’t happen… what did? Join writer/performer Barry Levey on an around-the-world adventure as he tracks down deniers from Illinois to Iran, meets engineers and ex-presidents, and dodges a brother in Hungary and a boyfriend back home on a journey to discover the shocking truth.
Developed at the New Group, the cell, and Prospect Theater Company at 59E59, Hoaxacaust! previously performed at Theater for the New City and won the NY International Fringe Festival’s 2014 Overall Excellence award.
