“The only way not to be a heroine, a martyr, a victim, is to make myself an accomplice, a collaborator.”
 
Communist. Jew. Revolutionary. Lover. Mother. Olga Benario’s story is a searing tale of survival as alongside her fellow prisoners she struggles to hold onto her disintegrating sense of self.
 
Based on real events of the 1930s-40s focusing on Benario’s time in Brazil and Germany, this gripping play was the first work by one of Europe’s foremost contemporary dramatists, Dea Loher, and was originally performed in 1992.
 
After their highly successful run in Luxembourg City, Speaking in Tongues bring the English language world premiere to London. Based in both cities, the company aims to bring European writing to English speaking audiences across the continent.
