"In the detention room of a Vichy police station in 1942, eight men have been picked up for questioning but none are told why they are held, or when they can leave. At first, their hopeful guess is that only their identity papers will be checked – but as each man is removed for interrogation, some are set free, some are never seen again, and the stakes rise for those who remain… A haunting examination of the cold, bureaucratic efficiency of evil – and the shared humanity that might overcome it."
Incident at Vichy premiered on Broadway at the ANTA Washington Square Theatre in December 1964, directed by Harold Clurman. It was last seen professionally in London in January 1966 at the Phoenix Theatre.
This new production is designed by Georgia de Grey with lighting by Robbie Butler and costume design by Penn O’Gara.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
