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.
