A riveting examination of the lives of ten Polish schoolmates who share the same nationality but are divided by different religions. When Nazism invades their country, the relationships that have been created in the classroom collapse. Savagery and hatred take the place of coexistence and mutual support. Will time be able to heal these wounds?
In this superb example of modern European drama written in 2009, the Polish playwright Tadeusz Słobodzianek blends a dispassionate account with scenes of high emotion to examine how moments in history mark the lives of individuals, bringing to the surface our hidden selves and rupturing the strongest human bonds.
