Dan Clancy’s award-winning play The Timekeepers is a Holocaust drama set at Sachsenhausen concentration camp in World War II Germany.
It tells the story of prisoners Benjamin, a conservative, elderly Jewish watchmaker put to work at his trade by the camp commander, and Hans, an outrageous young German homosexual who’s been assigned as Benjamin’s assistant. In spite of their dire circumstances and vast differences, the men form a strong bond over their shared love of opera and their wicked sense of humor.
The Timekeepers has played in London, Israel, Ireland, Canada, Poland, Germany and New York, and has generated glowing reviews. Dealing with the Holocaust in a way that accentuates the private experience of a horrific tragedy affecting millions, it became the most performed Israeli piece of theater in the world.
The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance, Theatre New West and theater director, Joe Watts, are collaborators for the production, which will be held June 12 through June 15 and June 21 and 22. June 12 is a special “pay-what-you-can” night. Admission for the remaining performances is $20.
The curtain rises at 7:30 p.m. and, for Friday and Saturday performances, at 8 p.m. The play will be performed in the Museum theater. The adult content of this production is not suitable for young children.
