Genre: Drama
by Sladjana Vujovic, directed by Jessi D. Hill

Zig thought he could talk his way out of anything. That is, until he met Rose. Now he finds himself locked away, playing a very dangerous game. Welcome to The Tender Mercies, where the only difference between wordplay and a war game is a weapon.


Written by Montenegrin playwright Sladjana Vujovic, The Tender Mercies was inspired by events that occurred during the Bosnian Civil War.


“Sladjana Vujovic mimes mundaneness of evil with playful wit and measured menace.”
