Stages of Annihilation seeks to unlock the conundrum of Holocaust dramatic representation by identifying those elements that inhibit theatrical enactment and by examining works that succeed, at least partially, in transcending these limitations. TheMoreStages of Annihilation seeks to unlock the conundrum of Holocaust dramatic representation by identifying those elements that inhibit theatrical enactment and by examining works that succeed, at least partially, in transcending these limitations.

The book identifies emerging patterns and correlations among dramatic texts written about the Holocaust over the past fifty years. Isser proposes a framework for assessing and adjudicating these plays that is rational and nonprescriptive. He also emphasizes the centrality of documentation and the social responsibility of playwrights in his reading of specific texts. Stages of Annihilation provides critical orientation for future actors, directors, and theater scholars interested in this compelling and problematic body of work.
