Benjamin won’t do swimming at school. His mother thinks he’s on drugs or has body issues. But Benjamin has found God, and mixed-gender swimming lessons offend him. Religious fundamentalism, tolerance and teenage angst clash in this darkly funny, timely play by one of Germany’s most prominent playwrights.

“Von Mayenburg ... writes dramas that often receive comparison to the elegant postmodernism of Caryl Churchill and the brutal poetry of Sarah Kane.”
—The Village Voice

Please note: Martyr is for mature audiences. This show deals with themes of violence and sexuality.
