This gripping new play about the Nazi regime premiered to great acclaim at Chichester during 2014. Set in 30s Germany where the celebrated young lawyer Hans Litten disappears into the Nazi system and his indomitable mother Irmgard confronts his captors at enormous personal risk as she fights to secure his release. ‘Informative, deeply engrossing play about the high price paid for resisting tyranny’ The Guardian
This will be the BLT entry into the Bromley and Kent Drama Festivals.
