De Mark Hayhurst

Résumé: Hayhurst casts light on a universal theme as the mother of brilliant German Jewish lawyer Hans Litten fights for his release against the seemingly impossible might of the Nazi regime. Fearless and indomitable she confronts his captors at enormous personal risk. The unquestionable love of a mother for her son is put centre stage in Hayhurst’s study of the horrors of pre-war Nazi Germany.

Commentaires : Transfert à londres de la production du Chichester Festival
Presse : "Much sensitivity and skill have been brought to bear on Jonathan Church’s production, all of which makes one wish that the play itself were less pro forma than it is. Time and again, there is the sense that the actual events must have been infinitely more disturbing, and the gathering portentousness of the writing has the perverse effect of closing off the experience, instead of enlarging a playgoer’s empathic response." Matt Wolf for The New York Times

"a superb performance by Penelope Wilton as Irmgard. Wilton increasingly reminds me of the great Peggy Ashcroft in her ability to convey moral authority without any ostentatious display of acting technique..."
Michael Billington for The Guardian (Review of the Chichester production)

"Penelope Wilton achieves a perfect mix of passion and authority in this affecting portrait of a woman resisting the tyranny of the Nazis. Her performance vibrates with indignation, yet is skilfully measured — it’s a study of heartbreak, but also of grace." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
