Directed and played by Lluís Homar, you can see it until March 10th.
In 1932 German Martin Schulse and American Jew Max Eisenstein were close friends and also partners in an Art Gallery in San Francisco, California. Martin, however, returns to Germany, and an epistolary relationship begins between them. But the letters, eventually, reflect the deterioration of their friendship because of the 1933 Hitler’s rise to power.
And the thing is that Max finds out that the “wonderful” regime his friend writes about is far cry from what people who left the country say, and later Martin asks Max to stop sending letters to him, because he is afraid of the consequences for his position if one of those letters was intercepted and his friendship with a Jew was discovered.
The tragedy of Nazi Germany and both victim and executioner’s human nature are some of the themes portrayed in this short story by the American playwright Kressmann Taylor, who with “Address unknown”, in 1938, tried to warn his country’s society about the dangers of the Third Reich.
It comes now as a theater play thanks to Lluís Homar, who despite of his intense activity had not been in a theater stage in Barcelona since 2007, and now returns in this production starring another of the great performers in our country, Eduard Fernández, along with Homar himself, who also directs the play.
