The Timekeepers

Where: Windy City Playhouse, 3014 W. Irving Park Road
When: May 9, 10 & 11 | 7:30 p.m.
What else:

Directed by Lee Gilat and performed by Roy Horovitz, Pinhas Mittelman, and Omer Etzion with an original score by Daniel Salomon, THE TIMEKEEPERS is a poignant look at a Jewish man and a gay man who live and work side by side at Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany in 1941. Benjamin, an elderly Jewish man is an expert watchmaker and Hans is a flamboyant singer who loves opera. Though the circumstances are grim, the two of them find that humor serves as a means of survival but also something even more -- understanding and empathy. The story of them fixing watches has metaphorical reverberations for our times -- about their relationship, the camp that they are forced to be in and about anti-Semitism and homophobia.
