About the Event
Written by Bertolt Brecht | Translated by John Willett Produced by Theatre Right Now | Directed by Anthony Proctor. Starring Liam Powell Berry
Brecht’s series of twenty-four interconnected playlets describe events which took place in ordinary German households in the 1930s. They dramatise with clinical precision the suspicion and anxiety experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as the power of Hitler grew.
Fear and Misery of the Third Reich will be presented at St Luke’s the Bombed Out Church, a building which acts as a reminder of the power and fury of Hilter, as of the power of the resistance of the allied forces. Juxtaposed against the modern atrocities happening in Ukraine now, this play is a siren call, a warning that if we allow hate to grow, we can, so easily allow history to repeat itself.
The performance is dedicated in solidarity to the people of Ukraine.
