CAMP SIEGFRIED Last Night

Spare is an overstatement here. Bess Wohl has written a slip of a play about two young people at a summer camp for Nazi sympathizers. From 1936-1941, CAMP SEIGFREID was run on Long Island by the German-American Bund. This is perhaps astonishing in itself, but the play is scant. It advances a single idea about how easily we are seduced into immorality but little else. I like Wohl (SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS, GRAND HORIZONS, MAKE BELIEVE) and David Cromer is among the finest directors of actors we have today, but there’s just too little to work with here. The two young actors are fine, though they lack dimension; they can’t supply what’s unwritten. CAMP SEIGFREID hardly develops and so, even as it’s brief, it’s inert. Less is long.
