A Serious Play About World War II
“You have ruined my story. You have taken some of what I said completely out of context and you have made the rest up.”
Willis & Vere, the duo behind the five-star, multi award-winning smash hit The Starship Osiris, have surprised critics by turning their back on comedy to adapt the memoirs of a Holocaust survivor.
But, through a lack of research and emotional maturity, the end result may not be quite as powerful or serious as originally intended.
And inviting the aforementioned survivor to the performance may just be the final nail in the pair’s coffin.
A Serious Play About World War II has been written and directed by Willis & Vere.
