Benjamin is refusing to participate in swimming. He’s driving his Mum crazy. His teachers are at the limit. In this secular high school, all hell is about to break loose.
A provocative text by one of Germany’s leading playwrights, Martyr is a wickedly funny work about a teenage boy who embraces religious fundamentalism. In this energetic new production by UOW students, Mayenburg’s text becomes a laboratory for the study of today’s most pressing social issues.
