From Sat 21 Aug 2021 to Sat 18 Sep 2021
1943. Four months into the Nazi occupation of Tunisia. You're imprisoned in a labour camp. You're buried up to your neck in earth. You're dying of thirst, you miss your wife, and your best friend just pissed on your face. How could things possibly get any worse?
Josh Azouz's Once Upon A Time in Nazi Occupied Tunisia is a brutally comic play about home and identity, marriage and survival, blood and feathers. It was first produced at the Almeida Theatre, London, in August 2021, directed by Eleanor Rhode.
'On the way over I saw three vipers copulating… I know what you're thinking… monogamy is under threat.'
'A brave, hilarious and singular play... something pretty special'Time Out
'A lesser known side of Nazi history, delivered with nuance... the play keeps both its strains of humour and horror running side by side until the end'Guardian
'A slow-burning absurdist thriller [with] precisely applied doses of bleak black humour'The Stage
'Funny, dark, and entirely original... you never quite know which way [Azouz's] bold imagination is going to lead him'Whatsonstage
