Synopsis

Benjamin won't do swimming at school.

His mum thinks he's on drugs or has body issues.

But Benjamin has found God and mixed-sex swimming lessons offend him.

Fundamentalism and tolerance clash in this funny, provocative play by leading German playwright, Marius von Mayenburg.

Martyr considers how far we should go in accommodating another's faith, and when we should take a stand for our own opposing beliefs.
