About this show

The Devil on All Sides is a haunting tragedy set during the war in ex-Yugoslavia. The play's protagonist, Lorko, a Christian, falls in love with and marries Selma, a Muslim. As the war breaks out, Melquiot shows us the pressures on their love, their families, and the crumbling world around them in a style that seamlessly blends expressionism, poetry, fantasy, and harsh, raw reality. The Devil on All Sides makes compelling art of world-altering violence, of fratricidal hatred, and of the literal dehumanization of war.
