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

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.

The actors – a comedy about the afterlife

comedy about the afterlife


When Harbo stumbles into an unfamiliar place, dressing gown on and a toothbrush still in his mouth, he is greeted by the most unlikely vision: A Full Barbershop quartet singing at him, who call on celebrities composed (pardon the pun) of pretty famous but also pretty dead people, (such as William Shakespeare) in this comedy about the afterlife.

They bring tidings: He’s dead. Of course he doesn’t believe them, so they go out of their way to prove it to him – first of all by telling him stuff from his life and then be reenacting scenes from it (of which William Shakespeare is terribly critical of, being that way inclined).

Once he has accepted the news, he then gets sorted into whether he’s going to Heaven or Hell and if it’s the former, well, there could be a new opening in the barbershop quartet in his future, if he wants it?

Although the cast is large in this comedy about the afterlife, it would also suit smaller casts where more than one small role can be taken by the same actor.

The author is happy with removing any adult content from this play to make it suitable for school productions.
