Directed by Peter Brook, 11 And 12 is a new play exploring an extraordinary conflict in West Africa under French occupation. It shows how a dispute over whether a certain prayer should be recited 11 or 12 times leads inexorably to hatred and massacres. The question of violence and the true place of tolerance make this epic story more relevant than ever today.

11 And 12 is suitable for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
