About the Show
Elodie is 17. She’s French. She finds reflective surfaces everywhere to test out new looks. Otto is 16. He’s a German soldier. He tries not to look at himself in the mirror.
Caught in the middle of a war, these two teenagers meet secretly for one night together as the world outside tears apart. Rita Kalnejais’ kaleidoscopic play asks us to consider the limits of empathy in a divided world. It seeks out tenderness amidst tragedy – hope in the hopeless.
Starring Tony-Award Nominee Austin Pendleton (The Minutes, Choir Boy), Tony-Award Winner Angelina Fiordellisi, Francesca Carpanini (All My Sons), and Uly Schlesinger (HBO Max’s “Generation”), This Beautiful Future places us at the nexus of two generations falling in love – one reflecting on old memories, and the other aspiring to make new ones.
