1943. Four months into the Nazi occupation of Tunisia. You're imprisoned in a labour camp. You're buried up to your neck in earth. You're dying of thirst, you miss your wife, and your best friend just pissed on your face. How could things possibly get any worse?

Josh Azouz's Once Upon A Time in Nazi Occupied Tunisia is a brutally comic play about home and identity, marriage and survival, blood and feathers.


"A lesser known side of Nazi history, delivered with nuance... the play keeps both its strains of humour and horror running side by side until the end."

- Guardian

"A slow-burning absurdist thriller [with] precisely applied doses of bleak black humour."

- The Stage

"A brave, hilarious and singular play... something pretty special."

- Time Out

"Funny, dark, and entirely original... you never quite know which way [Azouz's] bold imagination is going to lead him."
