Premiere theatrical production looks at life between friends in Nazi occupied Poland

Premiere theatrical production looks at life between friends in Nazi occupied Poland

Our Class
By Tadeusz Slobodzianek
October 29 - November 20, 2011
Minnesota Jewish Theater Company

It's Poland in 1925, and 10 young Jewish and Catholic children, all class mates, share their dreams of what they would like to be when they grow up. As the friends grow older, things in their small town change. Poland is first invaded by the Soviets and then the Nazis. A fervent nationalism develops and bitterness ensues. In a series of events, friends betray each other and violence escalates to an unimaginable end. Based on true events, Our Class explores human behavior with a captivating boldness.
