This full-cast production portrays German pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Adolf Hitler, and Jesus Christ with convincing clarity. The compelling dialogue begins with an account of Hitler's last hours, including his poisoning of his loyal dogs, their barking and whining turning to whimpers as they sense his intention. Slamming car doors and background commotion add authenticity. Hitler's spewing hatred, maniacal reasoning, and bombastic authority are exceptionally well done, complete with German accents. When Jesus and Bonhoeffer leave through heaven's "narrow door" after a lengthy discussion with Hitler, he learns that hell is separation from God, that the end does not justify the means, and that the price of his selfish life is a final eternity of pain.
