This Beautiful Future
April 28, 2017 - May 20, 2017
This Beautiful Future is a play set in World War II about the moment when love confronts extremism.
Elodie is 17. She’s French. She washes her legs before going to church. She believes in God.
Otto is 15. He’s a German soldier. Bulletproof skin. Eyes that could pierce tanks. He was part of a firing squad today.
It’s 1944. Outside, the world around them is exploding. Inside, the room shakes.
Elodie and Otto’s naked bodies touch.
