'JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG'
7:30 p.m. The Weekend Theater. $12-$16.

This play is based on the 1961 film of the same name, which was in turn based on the trials at the Nuremberg Military Tribunals of four German judges whose rulings during the Third Reich allowed for the Nazi murders of the Holocaust. The work examines the ways that seemingly compassionate, reasonable individuals can become party to atrocities and how they are held responsible for their actions within the framework of a larger societal crime.

"The reason I wanted to produce and direct 'Judgment at Nuremberg' this year is because I believe that people forget about how abusive all humans can become if we do not get reminded over and over that it is so easy to slip into denial and rationalization," said Ralph Hyman, director of The Weekend Theater production. The show runs at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 17.
