Tips for A Good Synopsis
'In a way, tackling the problem of writing a play about the Holocaust . . . was to not write about it, but to write about what it has done to us. There are no stock SS guards in THE MODEL APARTMENT, no facile sentimental ending. What I wanted to do was dramatize the problems inherent in both remembering and forgetting, and to see what this insoluble problem has done to succeeding generations.'
-- Donald Margulies
