About the show

Inspired by the real Camp Siegfried, which operated on New York’s Long Island in the 1930s…

As the world unknowingly sits on the brink of the Second World War, boy meets girl at a summer camp exclusively for American youth of German descent.

Immersed in the seemingly idyllic world of summer pastimes, the two teenagers embark upon a first relationship, each searching for identity and acceptance. But soon, they become dangerously consumed by the camp’s real aim: the preaching of Nazi ideology that will ultimately threaten to destroy them, and set the worldwide stage for global atrocity, devastation and genocide.

Bess Wohl’s (Grand Horizons, Small Mouth Sounds, Pretty Filthy) Camp Siegfried offers an intoxicating glimpse into infatuation and indoctrination in this world premiere production starring Patsy Ferran and Luke Thallon.
