Holocaust drama, "Way to Heaven," explores Jewish dilemma

Norbert Weisser & Talyan Wright
Offered the risk of exposing their Nazi imprisoners for Red Cross help, what should the Jewish inmates do? Theatrical drama, "Way to Heaven," portrays this dilemma at the Odyssey Theater through Dec 18.

"Engrossing and menacing, Way to Heaven is inspired by the true story of the elaborate deception that took place at the Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1944 Germany. In order to fool the international Red Cross inspectors, the Nazis constructed a fake village to quell extermination rumors. "A spare and eloquent work. "- NY Times
"Chilling...bracing in it's clarity and moral power." - L.A. Times

"Brilliant performances... a play for the ages." - Park La Brea Press

"Kudos magnificos, in whatever language you choose to translate it, to playwright Juan Mayorga." - Park LaBrea Press
