Lies, Love & Hitler needs you

johnboy 21 July 2010 5

Offprompt informs that CADA Studio Productions is looking for actors to star in a new work by local playwright Elizabeth Avery Scott.

Dr Paul Langley, age 39, is slightly mad. It’s not that he doesn’t have a good brain – like most academics, he has a very good brain – it’s just that he thinks he’s a little out of whack… mainly because he keeps seeing visions of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the dead man whose life and work he’s been studying for years.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 39, was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his role in a plot to kill Hitler. Langley is baffled how Bonhoeffer – a theologian like himself – could make the ideological leap from pacifism to tyrannicide in one fell swoop.

Langley finds himself in trouble when he falls for one of his students, Hannah Summers. Things become complicated when it’s discovered Hannah has a secret which threatens to destroy them both. Bonhoeffer walks Langley through his inner conflict, and Langley learns why, in morally ambiguous circumstances, it’s sometimes necessary to risk everything for a better future.

The audition is Thursday 29 July at the Street Theatre.

It’s something to look forward to when it hits the boards in November.

In an interesting coincidence, just today I picked up and read an advertising card thingy about this play, while awaiting the production of a skim milk no cream no icecream iced coffee. It sounded quite interesting.

Have the reptiods finally got the frequency dialled in right to read my brainwaves through my tinfoil hat?

No better time to become a vegetarian, you know it makes sense!

Vegetarians are trendy mental defectives who are skinny, gaunt, unhealthy and wimpish. Meat is vital for proper development of the brain – vegetarians have much lower IQs and intelligence levels than normal people. Vegetarian parents are far more likely to produce children with autism, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and cystic fibrosis. Hitler was a vegetarian.

I would be interested to know which authorative source you obtained this from. According to Robert Payne and Albert Speer and many other Hitler biographers, Hitler had something of a predilection for such vegetarian treats as Bavarian sausages, squab (young pigeon) ham, liver, and game.

Aside from anything else – what’s the point of your comment?
