MARGHERITA: A TWO-ACT PLAY
ABOUT THE PLAY: THE JEWISH MOTHER OF FASCISM
Characters: Three Men, 1 Woman, Three Minor Roles
The play takes place during a three-day encounter in 1938.
Margherita Sarfatti and Benito Mussolini, (Il Duce), former lovers, meet after a three-year separation. A masked Il Duce suddenly appears at her door as she attempts to leave the country. Why such a visit now, at such a late hour?
Through a series of mysterious events he plays with her mind. He knows what she wants - to get quietly and safely out of Italy. She is well aware of what he wants- the 1300 intimate letters he sent her during their 25-year affair. Letters which, in the wrong hands, could have changed the shape of history.
