In a Jewish ghetto at the height of the Second World War, a group of youths plot what will become known as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising while coming of age. This sharp comedy from Darrah Teitel (Behaviour, The Apology) is a story of youth, revolution, and betrayal in 1943 Poland as these young socialists rise to face their oppressors and change the world. This play is a comedy about political organizing set within the context of the Holocaust. Please be advised that this play deals with themes of oppression, class struggle, antisemitism, and racism. There are discussions about health/sickness, death, assassination, genocide, and suicide.
