Unit Set/Multiple Settings

This timely drama resulted from a trip to Romania. Developed with students from London's Central School of Drama, this is an incisive portrait of society in turmoil that focuses on two families to reveal what life is like under a totalitarian regime and what results when the regime collapses. The play's brief scenes are almost cinematic in their presentation of events as seen by ordinary people trying to live in peace.

"Brilliantly ... evoke[s] the mood of a country through snapshot images." - Guardian

"An act of moral commitment as well as theatrical virtuosity." - London Sunday Times
