Starting in 1926 and spanning 80 years, moving between Poland and America, Our Class is an epic play that's profoundly affected audiences and critics since its premiere at London's National Theatre. Ten Polish classmates -- five Catholic and five Jewish -- grow up over the course of the story. Their lives take dramatically unexpected turns as their country is torn apart by invading armies, first Soviet, then German, then Soviet again. Friend betrays friend and violence quickly escalates, reaching a crescendo that forever haunts the survivors. Based on true events in the Polish town of Jedwabne, Our Class is a groundbreaking play that courageously examines loyalty and treason, individual bravery and collective cowardice and the actions that ripped apart a small community during the Second World War.

GREAT show!!! I saw it in previews. It runs 90 min w/o intermission.
The play is a new piece, but very well crafted. The performances were excellent!!! The stage direction was very good [It needs just a little tweaking so that regardless of where you sit, you'll be able to see everything. Like I said, it was a preview.] The set design, lights & sound all worked really well. Overall, exceptional!!!!! Way to go Broken Nose!!!!!!
Quotes & Highlights
- "...a very smart play, about very smart people, asking very smart questions on a topic too often reduced to simplistic melodrama or hijacked in the service of other, extraneous, agendas. He does it all in 90 minutes, too." -- Mary Shen Barnidge, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/-THEATER-REVIEW-From-White-Plains/46117.html ">Windy City Times</a>
- "An emotionally compelling, ethically confounding ride. Director Spenser Davis coaxes grounded, nuanced performances in this swiftly paced Broken Nose Theatre production...the final confrontation between Dennis and the bully is a doozy." -- Justin Hayford, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/from-white-plains/Event?oid=12298390"><em>Chicago Reader</em></a>
