American playright Tony Kushner’s new play tells the story of a group of Communists and artists living in 1930s Berlin. 

It follows their lives during the dying days of the Weimar Republic and the rise of fascism. 

When the Nazis come to power they are forced to renounce their politics, flee to Russia or stay and face the new regime. 

It caused a sensation when published and is based on Bertolt Brecht’s play 

The Private Life of the Master Race.

There will also be a talk on 29 July following the show, free to all ticket holders. 

Professor Christopher Dillon from Kings College London will also give a talk on The World Perched on the Brink: the Rise and Demise of Communists in Weimar Germany.
