Written in 1978, THE WORKROOM explores the intractability of prejudice, specifically anti-Semitism, and the devastating consequences of war, evils of which we might have hoped to be free by the 21st century.
In Jean-Claude Grumberg's drama, a small group of displaced people, mostly women, are crowded together in an airless tailor's workroom in Paris in the immediate aftermath of World War II. Each is attempting, as it were, to patch together the torn fabric of her life.
