Benjamin Sinclair won’t do swimming at school anymore. His mum suspects drugs or maybe body issues. But Benjamin has found god and mixed-sex swimming lessons violate his religious feelings. Fundamentalism and tolerance clash in this funny but provocative play to be staged by Playbox Theatre.

Martyr is a new play written by Marius Von Mayenburg, one of Germany’s most widely produced playwrights. It’s a play that is immediate and questioning as we live surrounded by debates on fanaticism, religion and the power of indoctrination.
