About The Brief Life & Mysterious Death of Boris III, King of Bulgaria

By Sasha Wilson and Joseph Cullen
Directed by Hannah Hauer-King
With Lawrence Boothman, Joseph Cullen, Clare Fraenkel, David Leopold, and Sasha Wilson

The year is 1943 and Bulgaria has just told Hitler where to stick it.

Europe’s major powers are at war and King Boris III must choose a side or be swept away. A raucous and poignant tale in which a bunch of underdogs use every trick in the book to outwit the Nazis and save nearly 50,000 Jewish lives.

Award-winning Out Of The Forest Theatre's irreverent comedy - featuring live music inspired by Bulgarian and Jewish folk tunes - tells the incredible true story that the world forgot.

Well staged, Bare-bones, Relevant, Clever, Absorbing

See it if for snappy ensemble playing many roles. Creative history tale. Actors sing, play instruments. Cheeky script w/some lame jokes. Spirited!

Don’t see it if you want fully polished work. No set, costumes, few props. Accents. Fascinating story, well told. Some 4th wall breaks.

Boris gets chummy with nazis but redeems himself

See it if you're in the mood for a smaller show with a super talented, versatile casts. You like plays about history.

Don’t see it if you dislike when actors play multiple roles and women play men, etc. In this case, they did a great job.
