Taken at Midnight

By Mark Hayhurst. Directed by Gillian Gissing

Main House

8th – 16th May (not Sunday)

This gripping new play about the Nazi regime premiered to great acclaim at Chichester during 2014. Set in 30s Germany where the celebrated young lawyer Hans Litten disappears into the Nazi system and his indominatable mother Irmgard confronts his captors at enormous personal risk as she fights to secure his release. ‘Informative, deeply engrossing play about the high price paid for resisting tyranny’ The Guardian
