Alone in Berlin

Berlin, 1940, a city ruled by fear. A silent campaign of defiance.

‘This is how it was. This is what happened’ – New York Times

A gripping portrait of life in wartime Berlin and a vividly theatrical study of how paranoia can warp a society gripped by the fear of the night-time knock on the door.

Based on true events, Hans Fallada’s Alone in Berlin follows a quietly courageous couple, Otto and Anna Quangel who, in dealing with their own heartbreak, stand up to the brutal reality of the Nazi regime. With the smallest of acts, they defy Hitler’s rule with extraordinary bravery, facing the gravest of consequences.

Adapted by celebrated playwright Alistair Beaton (Feelgood, The Populist, The Trial of Tony Blair), this timely story of the moral power of personal resistance sees the Gestapo launch a massive hunt for the perpetrators and Otto and Anna negotiate the insidious effects of absolute power and find themselves players in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

“The greatest book ever written about German resistance to the Nazis” – Primo Levi
