Inspired by writings of a group of children who were prisoners in Terezin Concentration Camp, it tells the story of how they fought back the only way they could; through the written word, by documenting their lives, their thoughts and their dreams. It uses the specificity of their experience to make a universal statement about the ways in which children become the victims of adult political policies. The play, published by PlayScripts
, is regularly produced by regional, community and school theatres. Professional productions include: Adventure Stage at the Vittum Theatre, Chicago, IL, B.E.A.T. at the Tower Theatre, Bend, OR, Boilerhouse Theatre, Melbourne, Australia.
