On this third birthday Oskar Matzerath received the tin drum his Mama promised him the day he was born. It was then that he decided to stop right there, remain the precocious three-year-old, towered over by grownups but superior to all grownups. Complete both inside and out. He wills himself to stop growing. Now, from the confines of a mental hospital, Oskar tells us the story of his life in pre-war Poland. It is the story of a perplexing clairaudiant boy, his tin drum and his glass-shattering voice. A story that culminating on November 9th, 1938 – Kristallnacht. (Show Facebook Event)
