Friends. Enemies. Classmates. Based on a true story.

After its triumphant sold-out run at Brooklyn Academy of Music in winter 2024, Our Class transfers to Classic Stage Company.

Ten Polish classmates — five Jewish and five Catholic — grow up as friends and neighbors, then turn on one another with life and death consequences. Inspired by real life events surrounding a horrific 1941 pogrom in a small Polish village, this shocking, timely story follows their lives from childhood through eight decades in a new contemporary production of Tadeusz Słobodzianek’s masterpiece, from Ukrainian-born Jewish director Igor Golyak.

Our Class has received multiple award nominations: a Drama League Award Nomination for Outstanding Revival of a Play; an Outer Critics Circle Award Nomination for Outstanding Featured Performer in an Off-Broadway Play (Gus Birney, Dora); and a Drama Desk Award Nomination for Outstanding Projection and Video Design (Eric Dunlap).

“Igor Golyak is among the most inventive directors working in the United States.” – The New York Times

“The entire cast is excellent!” – The Wall Street Journal

“The best stage acting on offer in New York.” – Theatermania

Our Class contains material for adult audiences and mature themes. The production includes acts of violence, sexual assault, partial nudity, and antisemitic language. Recommended for ages 16+
