Don't Miss All Our Children's US Premiere
Celebrated British theater-director-turned-playwright Stephen Unwin stunned British audiences with his debut work All Our Children during its Off-West End run in early 2017. The thought-provoking WWII era drama comes to New York for its hotly anticipated US Off-Broadway premiere this Spring, featuring a star-studded cast including Tony-winning stage and screen veteran John Glover, Jennifer Dundas, Karl Kenzler and Tasha Lawrence.
A poignant examination of human morality, All Our Children is set in Nazi Germany, but instead focuses on the forgotten holocaust involving the deaths of 200 000 disabled people under the terrible regime. Set in a fictional hospital near Cologne, it takes place over the course of a long winter's day and follows the dispatch of German children and adults to euthanasia centres, as overseen by the weak paediatrician Dr. Franz and a host of Nazi bureaucrats. When the Bishop von Galen, a Catholic aristocrat denounces the evils of their eugenics program issues of class, religion and the political and economic legacy of the first world war collide with stunning and deeply moving results.
