Directed by Matt August, starring Joe Spano, Josh Stamberg, Garret Dillahunt, Daniel Stewart and Nick Toren.
We have all heard countless stories of the Holocaust: some heartbreaking, some inspiring—but few will have heard of Curt Herzstark, an Austrian industrialist and concentration camp prisoner. This deeply moving drama based on actual events reveals the story of Herzstark, sent by the Nazis during the War to an underground salt mine, where he began experimenting with a device that would become one of the most significant inventions of the 20th century: the hand-held calculator.
"... deeply moving ... makes for a gripping, suspense-filled evening that deepens into a richly felt morality tale with each new scene ... a play about the power of the human heart ..."- Houston Press
