Description

Olney brings you the world premiere of an intense drama that rivals Schindler’s List. Adapted from the acclaimed book by the same name, _King of the Jews _dares to explore the excruciating moral dilemma of the Judenrat, the group of Jewish officials in the ghettos of Europe who were forced to collaborate with the Nazis. It is a compelling story of power, politics, despair, and courage.

One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick "triangle," within easy access of all three cities.
