About this show

In this DC-debut of local-born playwright Stephanie Zadravec, unlikely partnerships emerge amidst a story of horror, humanity and stunning relevance. Set in Bosnia at the outbreak of the war in the Balkans in 1992, Honey Brown Eyes follows the parallel stories of two soldiers; one in a kitchen in Sarajevo and the other in a kitchen in Visegrad, both trying to recover a little of the humanity they've lost. A Serbian paramilitary soldier who must face the consequences of his own brutality confronts a woman he may have known and is faced with a terrible choice. Simultaneously, a Bosnian resistance fighter is crippled by the limits of his own courage and seeks refuge in a stranger's apartment where he unexpectedly meets a kindred soul, a resilient, elderly Bosnian-Serb woman. Directed by Jessica Lefkow.
