Synopsis


The weight of a life spent bearing witness.


"Tomorrow?


Tomorrow meant never …


I think the last time I thought of tomorrow with any hope was on the train to Auschwitz."


A decade on from surviving the Auschwitz concentration camp, chemist and writer Primo Levi is restless as he struggles to complete what will be his final published work.


In search of guidance, he pulls from the memories which haunt him and inadvertently brings the characters from his past to life - though their input proves to be far more penetrating than expected.


In this poignant, potent play peppered with cheeky Yiddish humour, Geoffrey Williams invites you to embark on Primo's cross-world journey which explores the ambiguity of human nature as defined by one of the twentieth century's greatest thinkers.
