His name is Gavrilo Princip. He is the young assassin that shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand. He fired the show that changed the world. But was it worth it? This one-hour play explores his life, his legacy, and the world he left behind forever changed.
This exciting new play finds Gavrilo in purgatory watching the blood and carnage of the 20th Century unfold. Not good enough for heaven and not bad enough for hell. This is his punishment, to watch the consequences of his actions over and over again. History has not been kind to Gavrilo. He has either been overlooked, misrepresented, or misunderstood. This is not a story about the colossal impact of his actions.
This is a story about a young man trying to find his place in the world, of having the best intentions, and getting the worst possible results.
