In this theatrical achievement, actor and writer Tom Dugan gives an award winning performance as he embodies this historic hero in his meticulous investigations and unwavering pursuit of justice. Wiesenthal presents a serious subject with nobility, intelligence and humor. The play allows audiences a rare opportunity to go beyond history books and achieve a better understanding of the complexities in the aftermath of the Holocaust.
