“With the world in a blaze of war, "The Theatre of Genocide" is all too timely. The compelling, evocative plays Robert Skloot has chosen move from the Armenian genocide, which preceded the Holocaust, to the more recent horrors of Cambodia, Bosnia, and Rwanda. Readers, educators, and theatre practitioners alike should find inspiration in this volume which serves as a warning against moral complacency and a call to meaningful action.”—Barbara W. Grossman, Tufts University, former Presidential appointee to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council
