Welcome to “’Neitzsche’ Ate Here.” (If you’re pointing out the misspelling of Frederick Nietzsche’s name, we already know. It’s all part of the story.)
'Neitzsche' was written and published in 1997 as a one-act play by Roy C. Berkowitz and performed originally at Source Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. with Paul MacWhorter directing and Rena Cherry Brown as CHERYL and Steven Carpenter as PAUL. Brown won "Best Actress" for her portrayal of CHERYL in 'Neitzsche' at the summer festival in D.C. that year. Presently, 'Neitzsche' is published by One Act Play Depot (© 2003 Roy C. Berkowitz).
In Columbus, Ohio, on or about the spring of 2001, 2 Cos Theatre Company performed 'Neitzsche' on its stage. Ten years later, Matt Starr (Director) along with the actors Gail Griffith (CHERYL) and Bruce Jacklin (PAUL) resurrected the 'Neitzsche' at an Evening of One-Acts at the Alcove Dinner Theatre in Mount Vernon, Ohio. From there, the story gained momentum and notoriety with both the Ohio Community Theatre Association (OCTA) and the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT).
