Agnete Ottosen was tough, unsentimental, and remarkable. When World War II broke out, Ottosen immediately joined the Danish Resistance, organizing the escape of many Jewish Danes, and writing for an underground newspaper. She was captured and tortured by the Gestapo and imprisoned in the notorious Ravensbrück concentration camp. Sonny Mills has woven humor and levity into their great-aunt's true tale of resistance, giving audiences historical insight and critical reflection on some of the most urgent issues of our time - nationalism, justice, and freedom.
With an unprecedented inaugural run in Canada, Three Crows is elated to present the US premier of The Danish Play.
