Synopsis: 

Dinner With Goebbels is a political satire about the nature of propaganda.  It concerns an imagined dinner between Edward Bernays, Freud's nephew, who used his uncle's ideas to invent the field of Public Relations; Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda, who used Bernays' books to exterminate the Jews, and Karl Rove, the creator of the War on Terror
As the evening progresses the dinner becomes increasingly volatile, revealing the true nature of the characters.  With the cut and thrust of this interplay we discover the mythologies of evil and war as the play moves relentlessly towards its climax.
