‘I used to be scared of them. They seemed so different. They don’t scare me any more. They’re just children, aren’t they? Just children.’
January 1941. A terrible crime is taking place in a clinic for disabled children. The perpetrators argue that it will help struggling parents and lift the financial burden on the mighty German state. One brave voice is raised in objection. But will the doctor listen?
A moving examination of a terrifying moral dilemma, and a powerful story that shows what it takes for humanity and decency to be restored in a world that has abandoned them. First produced by Tara Finney Productions, Stephen Unwin’s debut play All Our Children premiered at Jermyn Street Theatre, London, in 2017.
