Based on Hans Fallada's bestselling novel about true events in wartime Germany, Alone in Berlin is an enthralling portrait of a society gripped by the fear of a night-time knock on the door.

This timely story follows Otto and Anna as they negotiate the insidious effects of absolute power on every aspect of daily life. When they decide to make a stand in their own unique way they find themselves players in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the Gestapo – a game that will eventually lead them down through ever-narrowing circles of totalitarian hell.

Described as “the greatest book ever written about German resistance to the Nazis” by Primo Levi, this Oxford Playhouse co-production will be the first time Fallada’s masterpiece has been seen on a British stage. Charlotte Emmerson, Denis Conway and Joseph Marcell lead an ensemble cast.

Duration: 2 hours 30mins with interval
