Resistance tells the extraordinary true story of Jacques Lusseyran, a blind, teenage member of the French resistance movement in occupied Paris during World War 2. It is stunningly adapted for the stage by writer Maria Oshodi and Extant Theatre Company. The play, is one act, followed by an epilogue, is primarily set in a Gestapo interrogation room in Paris in 1943. A mystery develops from the outset; how could the arrested, blind teenager have anything to do with resistance activities against the occupying Nazi army?
