Oberlin Theater Production: Denial

Sunday, February 5, 2017 at 2:00pm

Hall Auditorium 67 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Lawyer Abigail Gersten is brilliant, Jewish, and a First Amendment absolutist. Professor Bernard Cooper is courtly, polite and dedicated to convincing the world that the Holocaust was a Jewish hoax. When the government prosecutes him, he turns to Abby for help. Offended by censorship in any form, she takes the case, but gets quickly drawn into a moral quagmire. Opposing her is an idealistic prosecutor and a venerable Holocaust survivor who call her loyalties into question and make her confront the differences between what is legal and what is right. The conflict that ensues concerns issues of history, memory, free speech, and how the stories we tell about ourselves determine who we are.

Play by Peter Sagal, directed by Oberlin Professor of Theater Paul Moser

Purchase tickets from Central Ticket Office in Hall Auditorium; $8 general admission.
