Righteous, which had an initial developmental reading in April 2017 at the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts as part of the National Jewish Theater Foundation Holocaust Theater International Initiative, tells the true story of Eduard Schulte, a member of Hitler’s inner circle who sounded the alarm of his plan to murder all the Jews in Europe.
