Collaboration | 25th – 30th April 2016

This production is Theatre 62’s entry in the 2016 Bromley Theatre Guild Full Length Play Festival.

It’s 1931 and composer Richard Strauss and novelist Stefan Zweig embark on a fruitful and invigorating partnership.

But Zweig is Jewish and the Nazis are on the march, destroying the artistic culture he values so much. Strauss, meanwhile, struggles to accommodate it, but for what reason?

Is it possible to keep artistic aspiration and political action separate? This powerful play considers the fine line between naivety and realism, collaboration and betrayal.

“Brilliant – and devastating. They’re the only words that do justice to the experience of watching Ronald Harwood’s…play” (Daily Telegraph)

Ronald Harwood’s other stage works include The Dresser, Quartet, The Handyman. Screenplays include The Pianist, The Browning Version, Oliver Twist
