Dr Kritzinger’s 12 O’Clock – Award Winning play about Nazi Germany

DR KRITZINGER’S 12 O’CLOCK – AWARD WINNING PLAY ABOUT NAZI GERMANY

The fascinating, if horrific account of how a group of less than twenty men in a meeting changed the world and impacted its history forever.

In this one act play, the matter at hand has to do with the Jewish untermenschen and their existence in European society. The drama revolves around the men at the 1942 Wannsee Conference seeking a permanent solution to expel the Jews from Europe and reinstate the Aryan race at the top, where the men believe they should be in this award winning play about Nazi Germany.

It is a scenario we’ve seen time and again: how a few men can make disastrous decisions in the name of beliefs that they think the world ought to live by, for the greater good. This meeting resulted in the Jewish genocide known as the Holocaust. As a thoughtful Kritzinger predicted, more than just a few million Jewish lives would be lost ‘for good’ after that meeting.

Dr. Kritzinger’s 12 O’Clock won the Best One-Act Award at the 2015 Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwright’s Festival.

IS THIS SEAT TAKEN? AWARD WINNING BRITISH ONE ACT SCRIPT

“Acting is attracting” (as said by Jack McFarland) is a statement that Laura and Will believe is their only shot at rekindling the dead flame of what used to be their marriage in this British one act script.

After fourteen years of trying to make it work, Will suggests role playing which Laura agrees to only because she loves him. After all, without the element of love at the centre of the effort they have both made to stay together, Will and Laura would have nothing.

Coincidentally, or maybe not by coincidence at all, in their eventful (and somewhat disastrous) night of role playing they encounter an unmarried couple doing the same thing. Through their meeting with Andy and Carrie, Laura and Will are faced with the reality that
there may very well be one right way to role play (or be married?) and their way might not be it. The odds become favourable for the married couple when the unmarried couple’s experienced role playing backfires randomly, teaching Will and Laura the most valuable lesson of all: you cannot build on anything which was built on nothing to begin with.

‘Is This Seat Taken?’ won Best New Play at the 2015 Welwyn Drama Festival.
