It’s a cold January in 1941 at a clinic for disabled children in Nazi Germany. But now, instead of helping them, the doctor is sending them off to their deaths. Meanwhile, his maid, who knows nothing about what is happening, is worried about her own “normal” children and the behavior of a young man who works at the clinic. When a working-class mother arrives to visit her son, the doctor is shocked to discover the depths of her love. And soon, much respected Bishop von Galen visits to challenge the state-supported program of murder with unpredictable results. Based on a real figure who successfully protested against the appalling policy of eugenics, All Our Children asks profound questions about how we should value all people, whatever their disabilities or limitations.

“What makes the play engrossing is Unwin’s ability to explore both internal doubt and external conflict.” —The Guardian
“A play about the care that people, and nations, owe to the weakest among them. It is, at its core, about the sanctity of life.” –The New York Times
