It’s 1939, and a German couple are desperate for help from the government. Unable to bear the shame of their situation they humbly request from the Führer his permission to eradicate the blight on their happiness: their disabled newborn, Gerhard. Gerhard would become the first of thousands murdered by the Nazi regime’s ‘mercy killings’, Hitler’s Aktion T4.

In 2017, He and She are expecting their first child. But as the tests come back, they realise something’s wrong. They have a choice, they can end it before it’s too late, but is a ‘sorting society’ any different from T4?

‘Kinder K’ questions what makes us human in today’s genome-revolution, and is written by Norwegian playwright Kristofer Grønskag and directed by Danish director Camilla Gürtler. A production by Cut the Cord theatre and Drama Centre London.
