The Sea

In The Sea, Amela Marin takes the universal story of Exodus and pares it down to a seemingly simple allegory, in which a mother places her two children in her pockets and attempts to leave her besieged city, walk across war-ravaged mountainsides, and reach the sea. What happens along the way makes The Sea an ode to the humanity inherent in us all, in our darkest moments.

“Amela Marin has written a parable of war that has all the force of Brecht and all the subtlety of Beckett.”
