This riveting drama explores one woman’s struggle, her son’s resistence and the heroic battle of the weak against the powerful, truth against lies and mothers against murderers.
Mark Hayhurst wrote the BBC film The Man Who Crossed Hitler and 37 Days, a mjaor factual drama series for the BBC’S WW1 Centenary in 2014. Penelope Wilton makes a long awaited return to the West End to play Irmgard Litten.
Penelope Wilton originates the role of Irmgard, the mother of celebrated lawyer Hans Litten who puts Hitler on the witness stand in 1930s Germany with devastating consequences.
The unquestionable love of a mother for her son is at the heart of this compelling new play. Fearless and indomitable she confronts his captors at enormous personal risk to fight for his release against the seemingly impossible might of the Nazi regime.
