A total theatre adaptation of
Gotthold Lessing´s 1779 play.

‘Once upon a time there was a Muslim, a Christian and a Jew
and they all lived happily ever after.
Why notmiracles can happen!?´

Overhead the bombs fall. Outside the soldiers hunt him and his ‘kind´ down. Deep in the basement of a deserted and derelict house Nathan – a Jew – hides. His only comfort is the tales he loved as a child, the tales of ‘Nathan the Wise’ – tales he hopes may now save his life!
