With (subject to change):
Berlin 1932, days after the elections which will soon bring Hitler to power. Mark Erdmann is an acclaimed Jewish physicist, the head of the atomic lab at the University of Berlin. His wife, Leah, an avid consumer of the city's rich cultural life, is involved in an extramarital affair. The signs of impending danger are increasing but the power of self-delusion cannot be easily overcome as the Jewish couple ponders whether to seek an unknown future outside Germany or stay put and succumb to a fate known to us in hindsight.
Globes (Israel): "A superb play. Shakes us to the core."
Yedioth Aharonoth (Israel): "Four stars...powerful parallels to our own times."
Teatro (Italy): "Oxygen for our theater...Makes us feel under our skin how we ourselves could have been in Germany of 1932"
