A timeless tale of friendship and betrayal

How strong are the bonds of friendship when your world is overturned? A successful art dealer returns to his native Germany, keeping a correspondence with his close Jewish friend back in America. Against a backdrop of austerity, recession and rising nationalism, their former allegiances become distorted beyond recognition.

Kathrine Kressmann Taylor’s classic pre-war text is brought to life in a powerful new production directed by Steve Marmion.

Written as an anti-fascist call to arms, Address Unknown was banned in 30s Germany for dramatically exposing the threat of Nazism. It became an international literary sensation and social phenomenon. Today it is a timely warning of how humanity can fail in the face of extreme ideology.

Soho Theatre is proud to present this unique theatrical event in partnership with Institut francais, JW3, the Jewish Community Centre London, with performances in French and English. Thanks to generous funding from the Mohamed S. Farsi Foundation 1,000 tickets have been made available to under 26s for just £10.

Performed in English
