This play is a result of our need to do theatre which has meaning in the face of a global crisis as the one we live in. What kind of story would you tell at the end of the world? 

In “At the Inland Sea” Edward Bond puts capitalism and nazism together, not just as a cause and effect but as a different name for a totalitarian system that occupies the human mind, time and imagination. There is a lot of plays like that but most of them are not written for young people, like this one is, and it treats young people like adults. 

In that sense it is a play about growing up, about how to keep a child’s creativity and sense of responsibility in a world that didn’t move far beyond Nazi Germany. 

A boy is studying for a history exam. Suddenly, a Woman from the past appears. She asks for a story which will save her baby from the gas chamber. What kind of story is that, and where is it found?
