Suitable for 14+ Running time: 70mins without an interval “Compelling theatre, immaculately performed.” Sunday Telegraph Sebastian Haffner wasn’t a Nazi and he wasn’t Jewish. He was just a sensitive and highly intelligent, but otherwise ordinary German, striving to come to terms with the madness that was Nazi Germany. Adapted from the award-winning memoir of the same name, ‘Defying Hitler’ is the candid, witty and extremely moving account of a young man growing up in the shadow of Hitler’s Third Reich. This production premiered at the National Theatre and has toured throughout the UK and to the Brits Off Broadway Festival in New York.
