Us/Them, January 24-28 at the Arthur Miller Theatre

This original drama by Belgium’s BRONKS Theater Company debuted to great acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016. Set in 2004, in the small village of Beslan, Belgium, when 1,200 schoolchildren and their parents were held hostage on the first day of school by a group of armed terrorists, the situation ended in tragedy three days later with over 300 dead, including 186 children. In Us/Them, two characters look back on the horrific experience, attempting to understand the incomprehensible, focusing on the way children cope with extreme situations with their own logic. The Guardian called the production, “A playful, comic, and desperately moving piece…Outstanding.”

$35-$40. January 24-28
