Family Stories by Biljana Srbljanovic
Whistler in the Dark Presents Slapstick Tragedy Family Stories by Biljana Srbljanovic
In Biljana Srbljanovic's haunting-yet-hilarious Family Stories,
four children play house amid the wreckage of a bombed-out playground. Reflected in the fun-house mirror of their game is a thrilling and devastating allegory of a post-war society. Part slapstick and part tragedy, Family Stories
examines the fear that results from living in a society without free media or civil liberties.

“If it gets really touch-and-go, we can always throw the dog on the grill.”
Between the laughter and horror lies a haunting and intensely shocking portrait of the cruelties and atrocities of a country at war with itself. First performed in Belgrade in 1997, Family Stories uses the games of four children to explore issues of censorship, war, oppression and rebellion.
Biljana Srbljanovic is a Serbian playwright and politician. She is also a part-time lecturer at the Faculty of the Dramatic Arts in Belgrade. Her plays have been staged in 50 countries.
