Set in 1930s Germany, the play follows the life of a young German man, Theo Lettner, as he struggles with the contradictions between his private life and his growing career in the Nazi party. Directed by Luther student Anna Becker, class of 2019, this production is a reminder of the dangers of polarized politics, over-policing and xenophobia. Talkbacks will be held afterwards to discuss to the heavy and relevant themes of the play.
