One Yellow Rabbit & Theaterlabor

An epic story of human dignity in an era of brutal repression

In 1936 Ludwig M., a Jew, is arrested by the Gestapo for homosexuality and is sent to Buchenwald and Auschwitz. After the war, he struggles to acknowledge his persecution as a Jew. And in the 1950s, he pushes the expression of his homosexuality by opening the first gay bar in Hanover.

Germany’s Theaterlabor brings us this compelling story about identity and human dignity, told through nightmarish and grotesque images, with documentary texts and stories that reflect the Zeitgeist of those years.

One Yellow Rabbit’s Andy Curtis plays the role of Ludwig M. in our Calgary performances.
