Lebensraum is a great example of the power of innovative theater to open our eyes and make us think. Using a cast of just three actors to play 40 very different characters, this bold work is based on the fanciful, explosive idea that a German Chancellor might, as an act of redemption, invite six million Jews to Germany and promise them citizenship and jobs. What happens next is a shocking examination of the effects of the policy on Jews and Gentiles, who have very different views of life and very different reactions to the program. Learn More

“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.
