Our class, by Vakhtangov theatre
In 2008 Polish playwright Tadeusz Słobodzianek finished Our Class. History in 14 lessons that in its name calls for recognising and learning from tragic history lessons. The story is set in 20th century Poland and is inspired by true events based on real-life characters.
The first day of school… Such a memorable day for every one of us. Full of life, joy, and hope, boys and girls talk about themselves, their parents, and their dreams. So begins their collective biography, and so begins Our Class as well. Together with these boys and girls you’ll attend different lessons and live ten different but interwoven lives. You witness them grow up, change, make friends, love and hate, as they face difficult circumstances and make important decisions. And yet, the only thing they can never do is break that invisible thread that connects all of them. There is a saying that "a classmate is like a relative."
