A controversial play about the Holocaust is set to open next week at Leeds Town Hall.
Playwright Jayson Bartlett, 49, who is not Jewish, spent five years researching and interviewing survivors in Eastern Europe for his play, The Interview, which has already been staged in Dewsbury, Yorkshire.
But he has taken an unusual approach. His heroine is an 85-year-old survivor whose life story is revealed in an interview with a reporter whose grandfather was a camp guard.
Mr Bartlett said he felt it was "unfair" only to think of the guards as inhumane.
