A gripping, intelligent and unlikely story that sees coming of age meet historical apocalypse.
Set in Berlin, 1945, three young boys huddle for days in the sewers as Russian tanks rumble through the streets above. Through membership of the Hitler Youth, the boys are conditioned to fight to the last bullet but, almost paralysed by fear and indecision, they bicker among themselves as they determine how to survive.
A play about history and our children, warfare and freewill.
