The Loaf Of Bread
Inspired by the tale Das Brot by Wolfgang Borchert.
Written and directed by Alan Booty.

Hamburg. WW2 is over. Food is scarce. Martha and her husband Hermann have agreed to ration their bread equally between them so that it will last. Very early one morning Martha wakes up alone. She creeps to the kitchen and turns on the light. She finds her startled husband. On the table is the loaf of bread which Martha had tidied away the evening before.So begins a play now serious, now humorous – one of fear and guilt, but also one of determination, hope and, above all, love.

Wolfgang Borchert
[1921 – 1947], was an outspoken critic of the Nazi regime. In the last two years of his life he wrote a play, poems and some fifty short stories, one of which was Das Brot.
