Myth, Propaganda and Disaster in Nazi Germany and Contemporary America

$29.99

Published with It Just Stopped.

Written with searing passion and dazzling momentum, Myth, Propaganda and Disaster in Nazi Germany and Contemporary America reverberates with the aftershocks of September 11. With compelling drive and theatrical daring, we are swept from cocktails at the Guggenheim to the hungry vacuum of Ground Zero. Stephen Sewell demands answers to some of the most urgent questions of our times. Where is the line between patriotism and nationalism? What happens when the Land of the Free makes such uncompromising statements as: ‘You’re either with us or against us’?

EXTRACT: I want to be saved; I want my life to be saved, to be given some meaning, and I know another person can’t do that for you, but I can’t do it for myself. I can’t, I’ve tried, but I can’t. I suppose I am angry, but it’s so far down, I’m barely aware of it. I hate this, this floundering. I read this thing the other day, about self awareness—did you read it? That they’re trying to write software for machines to have self awareness—isn’t that a strange idea?


REVIEW: MYTH, PROPAGANDA & DISASTER IN NAZI GERMANY...

PHILIP FISHER, BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE, 2004

"By the end of a chilling two and three quarter hours, one is almost persuaded that there are serious parallels between Kafka's world and that of Sewell and by extension ourselves."

AUDIO: AUSTRALIAN PLAYWRIGHT STEPHEN SEWELL INTERVIEW

THEATRE VOICE, 12 NOVEMBER 2004

The Australian playwright talks to Philip Fisher about his acclaimed war-on-terror thriller, Myth, Progaganda and Disaster in Nazi Germany… and Contemporary America.

REVIEW: ANOTHER KIND OF SEPTEMBER 11 HERO

LENNY ANN LOW, SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 31 OCTOBER 2003

"Sewell has produced a powerful and robust analysis of the currently conservative politics of the US and a warning to Australia. Myth is not a solution to the state of the world. It is a penetrating and beautifully crafted missive to us all."
