  • Overview
    The story revolves around a young boy, Andri who is brought up as the Jewish adoptive son of the town's Teacher, who claims to have rescued him as a child from the neighbouring, anti-semitic "Blacks" (implying Blackshirts). However, it is revealed during the first half of the play that the story of Andri's origin is a lie: he is the illegitimate child of the Teacher and the SeƱora, a lady from the Blacks, and Andri is not a Jew.

    The Andorra in Frisch's play is fictional and not intended to be a representation of the real Andorra located between France and Spain.
