The Degenerates by Germaine Shames Presented by WSRep LAB Series FREE ADMISSION! When Adolf Hitler declares war on Europe’s avant-garde, a jaded Paris art dealer and a high-minded Berlin art student play a deadly game of bait-and-switch to save the life of a condemned Jewish artist. Germaine Shames (playwright) Shames, a recipient of Arizona’s Fellowship in Fiction, is the author of the award-winning novels, "Between Two Deserts" and "You, Fascinating You." Writing under the pen name Casper Silk ("Hotel Noir," "Echo Year"), she has been compared to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Graham Greene and P.D. James “on steroids." A returning playwright, Shames majored in Theatre as an undergraduate. Following a successful career as a novelist and journalist, she wrote her first suite of short plays, "Wars of the Flesh," which was voted into Tucson’s 2014 New Play Festival. Her first musical, the epic historical drama "You, Fascinating You," was a finalist in the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival and under contract with a commercial producer. Songs from the show have been performed in Paris and New York City cabarets.
