The Big and the Small - 2018 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Funerals are for the living. What happened, why, who did it and how - none of that matters in the moments before. A play about those moments before, The Big and the Small is a series of two-handers, each in identical rooms in a grand hotel in Zürich. As guests enjoy the last moments of their private, awkward, funny and not-so-funny lives, themes of nationalism, tourism, social responsibility, isolation, class and gender roles are all explored. In a time of global crisis, what does neutrality mean for a country full of banks?
