NORTHERN CALIFORNIA PREMIERE
Can one man, one moment, derail a century? Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph explores the present by focusing on the past: the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, 1914—
the flash that ignited World War I. On a darkly comic quest for immortality, three hapless insurgents prove that little has changed from then to now.
This New Works Festival sensation is from the author of Broadway’s Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.
This production runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.
Curious how international travel helped shape Archduke?
