Jewish watchmaker Binyamin Hirschfeld (inmate no. 1793) and extrovert German homosexual Hans (9355) meet in a small room in a concentration camp, under the watchful eye of a kapo. Binyamin repairs watches, Hans knows “how to manage”, and they can both sing opera. So, what should they do? It transpires that humor is a wonderful weapon. The play premiered in London in 2002, to great acclaim, and brought the playwright two prestigious awards in the United States: the Hudson River Classics Playwright’s Award and the Writer’s Digest Playwright’s Contest Award.
