Antony Sher stars in his own adaptation of Primo Levi's harrowing account of Auschwitz. Read More >

Primo Levi survived Auschwitz to bear witness to a story of almost inconceivable brutality. But against the odds, what ultimately emerges in his writing is a sense of humanity, of man’s worth. Working closely with Royal Court Associate Director Richard Wilson, Antony Sher has adapted and performs this remarkable testament in a way that allows Levi’s words to speak, simply, for themselves.
