Fascism doesn't show up in jackboots and swastikas. It arrives in the form of a polite older gentleman on Christmas Eve. Roland Schimmelpfennig's play about the failure of liberal intellectuals to confront the historic danger of extremism was written in 2015 in a German context and it's universal relevance has only become more striking this year. Winter Solstice is a portrait of liberal impotence in the face of blind conviction. Will these well-meaning dedicated people take action when facism is entertaining them in their living room? This production is Apollinaire Theatre's second Schimmelpfennig U.S. premiere staging at Chelsea Theatre Works.
