25 April- 20 May

A play set in World War II about the moment when love confronts extremism.


Elodie is 17. She’s French. She washes her legs before going to church. She believes in God.

Otto is 15. He’s a German soldier. Bulletproof skin. Eyes that could pierce tanks. He was part of a firing squad today.

It’s 1944. Outside, the world around them is exploding. Inside, the room shakes.

Elodie and Otto’s naked bodies touch.

Written by Rita Kalnejais (First Love is the Revolution, Soho Theatre ★★★★★ – Time Out) and directed by The Yard’s Artistic Director Jay Miller (The Mikvah Project, LINES, Removal Men), This Beautiful Future is a show about the moment when love confronts extremism.
