By special arrangement with Daryl Roth Theatrical Licensing, The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County proudly presents a reading of WIESENTHAL by Tom Dugan.

This one-man show, filled with hope, humanity, and humor, is the true story of Simon Wiesenthal, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. Nicknamed the “Jewish James Bond,” he devoted his life to bringing more than 1,000 Nazi war criminals to justice. His unbelievable dedication and tenacity over decades is honored in this play. The play, set in 2003, two years before his death, relates the details of a few of his investigations. Among them were the pursuit of Franz Stangl the former commandant of the Treblinka death camp, and the search for the officer who arrested Anne Frank.

Simon Wiesenthal’s persistence, hard work, and humor are all thoroughly conveyed throughout the 90-minute running time.

This riveting play will be read by Harlan Tuckman, a former Marlboro Township and current Monroe Township resident. Tuckman is a well-recognized writer and local actor, with on- and off-Broadway credits.
