CHICAGO -- The Chicago area has already seen two plays about the Holocaust this season--Northlight Theatre's The Glass House and The Last Survivor. Opening April 10, Circle Theatre presents another, the Midwest premiere of the chillingly named Auschwitz Lullaby, by James C. Wall. Inspired by the Auschwitz diaries of Dr. Milos Nyiszli, it portrays a Jewish pathologist in 1944 who is forced to work in Josef Mengele's laboratory. There he must decide whether to risk his life to rescue a young girl from that madman's sadistic experiments. For information call (708) 771-0700.
