World Premiere
by Omer Abbas Salem, directed by Laura Alcalá Baker

Berlin, 1944: four women in Aryan drag vie to be the Führer’s personal secretary as he heads into a bunker with his girlfriend. As the Third Reich crumbles around them, mystery and secrets abound, causing tensions to escalate. Omer Abbas Salem’s fearsome, outrageous, and absurd new work examines complicity and the lies we tell ourselves as we mistake self-interest and supremacy for civic duty. This is Salem’s much anticipated first production as a playwright in Chicago.
