READ MORE FROM THE PRESS

Starting in 1926 and spanning 80 years, moving between Poland and America, this epic play has profoundly affected audiences and critics since its premiere at London’s National Theatre. As ten Polish classmates – five Catholic, five Jewish – grow up, their lives take dramatically unexpected turns as their country is torn apart by invading armies, first Soviet, then German, then Soviet again. Friend betrays friend and violence quickly escalates, reaching a crescendo that will forever haunt the survivors. 
The production contains violence and mature themes

Based on true events in the Polish town of Jedwabne and inspired in part by Jan Gross’s controversial book "Neighbors," this play received raves for its American premiere last season at Philadelphia's Wilma Theatre.
