What's On

Diplomacy
 

By Cyril Gély. Translated & adapted by Julie Rose

An unmissable production starring theatre legends John Bell and John Gaden.

In 1944 at the Hôtel Meurice, Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling and German General Dietrich von Choltitz meet in a life and death situation for the city of Paris. On abandoning Paris, Hitler has ordered its destruction. Raoul has one night to persuade the General to leave the landmark city standing. The many twists and turns of their negotiations play out in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.

“This perfectly formed play and its players is the stuff that theatres are built for. The risk, the tension, the danger and doubt and the unravelling of our conscience.”
Sydney Scoop

“It’s not often that such a stimulating and well-crafted play comes along.”
