Adapted by Ariane Mnouchkine
Based on the novel by Klaus Mann
Translated by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Director: Wyn Jones

In pre-war Germany, a group of theatre workers face the National Socialists’ rise to power.
Some resist, some are caught unawares and some pay with their lives. But one of them, a provincial actor and professed communist, sells his soul to Nazi patronage for popularity, fame and power.
Guildhall School final year actors present this stage adaptation of Klaus Mann’s modern classic, directed by the School’s Director of Acting, Wyn Jones.
