Stephen Unwin’s elegant debut work, All Our Children,  shows a world caught in a spiral of horror and examines a brutal system which sanctioned mass murder for those who led, what the Nazis called ‘lives unworthy of life’.

An astonishing and chilling story of courage, betrayal and humanity, Unwin unfolds a rich dramatic narrative, and explores cultural, moral and social arguments which still rage today.

Stephen Unwin said “All Our Children comes from a deep place.  I am the father of a profoundly disabled young man, but also the son of a German-Jewish refugee and was brought up as Catholic.  The story of the conservative Bishop von Galen’s campaign against euthanasia and murder fascinated and moved me.  And I was shocked by the pseudo science and rationality that the Nazis offered in defence.

How do we value those who are not productive; how do we support those who can’t support themselves; how do we protect the most vulnerable?  The challenges that the disabled face today are, thankfully, a long way from the horrors of Nazi Germany, but some of the philosophical and social questions that it raises are fiercely relevant today.”

All Our Children is at The Jermyn Street Theatre Wednesday 26th April to Saturday 3rd June.
