The Secretaries: A Parable

The Secretaries: A Parable

The Den Theatre
1329-1333 N. Milwaukee Chicago

Berlin, 1944: four women in Aryan drag vie to be the Fuhrer's personal secretary as he heads into a bunker with his girlfriend. As the Third Reich crumbles around them, mystery and secrets abound, causing tensions to escalate. Omer Abbas Salem's fearsome, outrageous and absurd new work examines complicity and the lies we tell ourselves as we mistake self-interest and supremacy for civic duty. This is Salem's first production as a playwright in Chicago.

Presented by First Floor Theater
