The Mainstage Series
Who killed the Jews of Jedwabne and why? Jan Gross’ controversial book Neighbors uncovered a chilling truth about one village: that up to 1,600 Jews may have been killed by their own neighbors and not the Nazis after all. In his award-winning play inspired by Gross’ book, Tadeusz Slobodzianek introduces us to schoolmates Dora and Rysiek, Zocha and Jakob, children dreaming of futures as teachers, film stars and soldiers. We see them grow up to betray one another as Germany and Russia invade their country; fear, envy and paranoia beget violence, murder, revenge, retribution and, ultimately, redemption. A unique collaboration with The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh.
