Adapted by the distinguished English actor-playwright Antony Sher from the memoir of Holocaust survivor Primo Levi, PRIMO is a one-man drama with a world of meaning beyond its deceptively simple format. In quiet but unsparing language, Primo Levi narrates the story of how he, an Italian Jewish partisan, was captured by the Nazis and sent to Auschwitz. "Concentration camp life: proves a contradiction in terms, as Primo and the other prisoners are systematically stripped of possessions, identity, and pride and fed the barest minimum possible so they can work at forced labor in freezing temperatures. Primo forms a close bond with fellow chemist Alberto and treasures the few moments of humanity and hope they are able to find in this hell. Still, even as they survive, the specter of being selected for extermination always hangs over the prisoners. Primo lives to see the liberation of the camp by Russian soldiers, but first gives us a rare glimpse into the last days before the liberation, after the Nazis left. PRIMO was critically acclaimed on Broadway and London stages for bringing Levi's starkly honest, startlingly unsentimental writing to new, wider audiences.
