INCIDENT AT VICHY is a 1964 play by American dramatist Arthur Miller about a group of men detained in Vichy France and held to wait unknowingly, for what turns out to be their “racial” inspection by German military officers and Vichy French police during World War II. It focuses on the subjects of human nature, guilt, fear, and complicity and examines how the Nazis were able to perpetrate the Holocaust with so little resistance.  Hailed as “one of the most important plays of our time,” by Howard Taubman in The New York Times, the play is as relevant today as it was 55 years ago.
