They Will Drown in Their Mothers’ Tears is a science fiction thriller about hope and hopelessness in today’s Europe, friendship and betrayal, and the mechanisms of terror and fascism. Playwright and Director Farnaz Arbabi, who previously has dramatized stories from a historical perspective, now moves to theories of the future. What does the tomorrow we create today look like?
What can we learn from looking backward and forward in time? Is it possible to time travel and thereby stop a catastrophe from happening? They Will Drown in Their Mothers’ Tears portrays the fear many feel about growing populism and extremism. It is a highly topical story about nationalism, fear, and radicalization.
They Will Drown in Their Mothers’ Tears is a collaboration between Unga Klara and Uppsala stadsteater.
