LOS ANGELES, CA, AUGUST 19, 2017 -- Los Angeles playwright Tom Jacobson surrounds himself with some of his friends who benefit from taxidermy at his home in Los Angeles on August 19, 2017. Jacobson also works at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, known for many displays that uses the art of taxidermy. He is tremendously prolific, with such popular works to his credit as "Ouroboros," "Sperm," "Tainted Blood" and "The Twentieth-Century Way." On Sept. 9, his play "Walking to Buchenwald" opens as a Circle X Theatre shortly after his, "The Devil's Wife" closes at the Skylight Theatre. By day, Jacobson is a fundraiser for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Jacobson's plays are inspired by history, literature, art and personal life. There is a personal angle to "Walking to Buchenwald": Jacobson and his partner took Jacobson's parents on a trip to Europe, as the characters in the play do, and one of the characters works for a natural history museum.
