Synopsis: When the world turns upside down and the unthinkable happens, how far would you go to survive? Prague, 1945: The war is over – but revenge against Nazis and traitors has just begun. In Prague’s Pankrác prison, five women accused of Nazi collaboration share a cell. Each keeps a secret. Each knows the gallows await.
Join us for a gut-wrenching play about human relationships, exploring questions of guilt, responsibility, betrayal and survival.
