									"Wiesenthal" One-Man Play - the Story of a Survivor Seeking Justice - March
13-17, 2013

Aventura, FL, February 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Playwright, actor and Drama Critics Circle Award-winner
Tom Dugan will present “Wiesenthal,” updated from his play “Nazi Hunter - Simon Wiesenthal,”
featuring a newly premiered title and recently discovered details of Wiesenthal's important work, at the
Aventura Arts & Cultural Center at 3385 NE 188th Street in Aventura, Florida from March 13-17, 2013.

“Wiesenthal” portrays the famed concentration camp survivor's life pursuit for bringing Nazi criminals to
justice and is set on the day of the famed Nazi hunter's retirement. “It was the rejection of collective guilt
which first drew me to Wiesenthal's story,” says Dugan. "For me, Simon Wiesenthal was a true 20th
Century hero."

While packing up his files, "Wiesenthal" recounts with warmth, wit and surprising humor, how, after
cheating death at the hands of Hitler's dreaded S.S., Wiesenthal dedicates his life to tracking down and
bringing to justice nearly 1,100 fugitive Nazi war criminals including Franz Stangl, the Treblinka death
camp commandant; Karl Silberbauer, the S.S. officer who imprisoned Anne Frank; Franz Murer, “The
Butcher of Wilna”; and the infamous “Architect of the Holocaust,” Adolph Eichmann.

“I am thrilled to perform 'Wiesenthal' at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center in March," says actor and
playwright Tom Dugan. "I look forward to shedding light on recently discovered details of Wiesenthal's
important work."

“Wiesenthal” is directed by Jenny Sullivan, a highly respected director with work including the
Off-Broadway production of The Baby Dance and the Los Angeles production of The Vagina
Monologues and is the writer and director in the acclaimed autobiographical play J for J starring John

Dugan, the son of a decorated WWII veteran, is available to provide commentary on the exceptional life
of Wiesenthal (1908 - 2005) - the man known as “The Conscience of the Holocaust.”

Performance times include: Wednesday through Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and
Sunday at 2 p.m. For tickets, contact (877) 311-7469 or buy online at:
