Albert Speer $27.26 ex GST

Plucked from obscurity to be Hitler's architect and Minister of War, Albert Speer became the second most powerful man in Nazi Germany and the closest Hitler had to a friend. This panoramic adaptation of Gita Sereny's definitive and magisterial biography tells the epic story of a man whose devotion to Hitler blinded him to the the worst crime of the twentieth century.

Review
David Edgar's compelling new play offers a clear-sighted examination of the psychology of guilt, denial and repentance, an unsqueamish and chilling dissection of a heart of darkness -  The Mail on Sunday.


Cast : 6F, 20m - more if desired
