The Central and Eastern European Studies Research Group & Studies in Migration Research Group present Ottawa premiere of the internationally acclaimed play from South Africa 

Cheers to Sarajevo directed by Ashleigh Harvey

 

At the dawn of the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the early 1990s, a South African photo journalist records a soon-to-be-taboo love affair between a Bosnian Serb man and a Bosnian Muslim woman. What begins as a story of love and friendship becomes a complicated tale of patriotism, conflict of allegiance, and rape used as a weapon of war. However, the play also demonstrates the strength people muster to resist hatred.
