Fear and Misery of the Third Reich

Kat Mary Productions in association with Scene Productions touring theatre company proudly present Brecht's


Fear and Misery of the Third Reich


Translation by JOHN WILLETT, presented by arrangement with ALAN BRODIE REPRESENTATION LIMITED.


This production (originally 24 interconnected playlets) describe events which took place in ordinary German households in the 1930s. They dramatise with clinical precision the suspicion, anxiety and dread experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as the power of Hitler grew. Told by three actors through extensive multi-roling, the show portrays life under the Nazis in both a disturbing and at times highly amusing way.


Running time 1hr

Followed by an optional post show 20minute Q&A


This production is a fantastic opportunity for GCSE and A-Level drama students to see how Brecht's V-Effekt techniques can be applied to a performance. All schools who book will receive a free teachers pack with over 20 pages of Brechtian theory and production analysis to complement class discussion.
