I have written about aging, about grief, about families, about illness, and even, with Modern Times, almost a musical, and MacBush, about the seriousness and the absurdity of modern life. In these plays I have always tempered the darker moments with humour, absurdity, surprise, and music. But not in The Decision. No relief is offered here, in Amsterdam in the spring of 1940, shortly after the destruction of Rotterdam.
