The Journals of Mihail Sebastian


In the decadent, politically explosive Bucharest of the 1930s and 40s, a young writer struggles to maintain his career, his integrity and his Jewish identity, even as his closest friends ally themselves with Fascism. This one-man play spans eight tumultuous years and opens a personal window on the Romanian Holocaust and the Second World War.
