All Our Children
Stephen Unwin directs All Our Children, his gripping new play which probes one of the darkest episodes in recent history. Unwin’s elegant debut work shows a world caught in a spiral of horror and examines a brutal system which sanctioned mass murder for those who led what the Nazis called ‘lives unworthy of life’. An astonishing and chilling story of courage, betrayal and humanity, Unwin tells a rich dramatic narrative, and explores cultural, moral and social arguments which still rage today.

January 1941. Snow is falling. A terrible crime is taking place in a clinic for disabled children. The perpetrators argue that it will help struggling parents and lift the financial burden on the mighty German state. One brave voice is raised in objection. But will the Doctor listen?
