A Jewish cemetery in Deadclass, Ohio, is the place (and time) for a seance. Five generations of E’s family are buried there, as are M’s grandparents, Blue and Luna, who met as children fleeing Nazi occupation and moved together to Deadclass to build a family. After the war, both had returned to Krakow to find all their relatives were dead – their hometown had become a cemetery. Inspired by Tadeusz Kantor’s masterpiece, DEADCLASS, OHIO is a seance of the living and a love story of the dead.
