1979. On a beach in Brazil, Joseph Mengele, the notorious Auschwitz doctor, swims like he does every morning. Swimming out in the sea he gets a crisis and returns to the shore where he is confronted by a local woman. Flattered and fascinated by her enigmatic presence, Mengele  reveals himself to her. As he seeks to justify his life, he ultimately succeeds in condemning himself.
An atmospheric production written by writer and historian Philip Wareham with veteran Tim Marriott (BBC TV The Brittas Empire), which is presented in cinematic style. The production is rich and intense with its contemporary reference as it exposes a sociopathic narcissist on stage.

An atmospheric production written by author and historian Philip Wareham with veteran performer Tim Marriott (BBC TV The Brittas Empire) , which promises to be richly engaging, frequently uncomfortable and deeply poignant in its contemporary reference as we expose a sociopathic narcissist on stage.

conjunction with the NHS and Combat Stress, The Twelfth Disciple (the interrogation of a

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
