A new play by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran at the Oxford Playhouse. On until the 18 September.
“It’s seventy years ago! Ancient history! Can’t we just move on?” exclaims Sasha, the youngest member of the Jewish Roth family half way through this play, when the subject of the Holocaust threatens to take over an already tense and fraught family gathering. Just because they are Jewish, do they have to remain perpetually obsessed with persecutions that happened, in some cases, thousands of years ago? http://www.oxfordprospect.co.uk/VonRibbentropsWatch.html
