German Drama Class Performs "Die Physiker""

Dr. Reinhard Zachau's German Drama class worked hard to put together a performance of "Die Physiker" by Friedrich Dürrenmatt.  Informed by the Second World War and the many recent advances in science and nuclear technology. The play deals with questions of scientific ethics and mankind's ability to handle its intellectual responsibilities. The play was first performed in Zürich in 1962 and has remained popular in the decades since.  The class memorized their lines and put on a great performance, and Kathe Richter filmed and edited it.
