Elodie is 17. She’s French. She washes her legs before going to church. She believes in God.

Otto is 15. He’s a German soldier. Bulletproof skin. Eyes that could pierce tanks. He was part of a firing squad today.

It’s 1944. Outside, the world around them is exploding. Inside, the room shakes.

Elodie and Otto’s naked bodies touch.

Back by popular demand. (Reviews are from April)

“An extraordinary staging of Rita Kalnejais' daringly unconventional love story.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“Superb and surprising... A fleeting encounter sheds light on the whole world.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Brilliant, and day-glo brite... Properly funny dialogue... Millward: endlessly watchable... Just the right side of ‘too much’.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Idiosyncratic, yet direct and truthful... Moments that might come across as sentimental are stupidly beautiful and teary.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Delicate, ambiguous and forceful... Both enticingly played... Darkness and sweetness sit side by side, without hectoring comment”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“The underdeveloped central story is too weak to support such a sweeping thesis... Shining moments of stillness and profundity. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
