Andrzej Panufnik, one of the most important Polish 20th-century composers was born into war-torn Poland, and lived under the successive rule of the Nazis and the Soviets. The play follows the composer as he begins to make his way as an artist struggling to find a voice in a world where free speech is forbidden. Filled with amusing, shocking, and tragic incidents - including confrontations with Nazi overlords, and a high-speed car-chase - the play explores the horrors of tyranny, the power of art, and the triumph of the human spirit over adversity amid the expression of Panufnik's own music to create a unique dramatic fusion of words and music.
