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.

This show was SO much fun. The acting was fantastic, set and costume were beautiful, and I laughed out loud several times (which is rare for me)! This is such an enjoyable event, but don't bring small kids- there's way too much silly innuendo!

Figaro must outwit the Count's lustful advances towards his fiance and when his plotting reveals several other sexual games, the night culminates in mistaken identities and deliciously funny farce. Ranjit Bolt pens this retelling of Beaumarchais' play made famous in opera form by Mozart.
