A play about history and our children, warfare and freewill.
Berlin. 1945. The last gasp of World War II. Three young boys huddle for days in the sewers as the Russian tanks rumble through the streets above. Karl and Albert are members of the Hitler Youth, firm in the belief that "your body belongs to your nation". Herret is desperate to get back to his mother, but he knows enough to fall in line. The rules of their favourite game have changed and now the bullets are real.
Conditioned to fight to the last bullet, the boys bicker amongst themselves as they must determine how to survive. They debate the promises made to them by Hitler and they talk of the prospect of love and dream about their first kiss.
What will the sudden arrival of a teenage girl running from the occupiers bring to these boys desperate to become men before their time?
This must-see new Australian play from Award-winning playwright and director Toby Schmitz is a gripping, intelligent and unlikely story that sees coming of age meet historical apocalypse in a unique and immersive theatrical experience.
