Vaudevisuals interview with Hilary Chaplain

The Last Rat of Theresienstadt

Sofia Brünn, a Weimar cabaret star from the 1930’s Berlin finds herself transplanted to Theresienstadt, a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. During her time in the camp, she forges an unlikely friendship with Pavel, a rat. Despite the lack of food that has driven away the rest of his kind, Pavel remains with her out of his love for her and her art.

This is a show about resistance and hope, and the need to fill the soul as well as the body. A dark comedy, The Last Rat of Theresienstadt is a low tech, multi-media play with music, puppetry and live-action projections that incorporate original songs, artwork, poetry, and humor created by prisoners in Theresienstadt.
