A new play by Christopher Hampton, drawn from the life and testimony of Brunhilde Pomsel, directed by Jonathan Kent with Maggie Smith.
"I had no idea what was going on. Or very little. No more than most people. So you can't make me feel guilty."
Brunhilde Pomsel's life spanned the twentieth century.
She struggled to make ends meet as a secretary in Berlin during the 1930s, her many employers including a Jewish insurance broker, the German Broadcasting Corporation and, eventually, Joseph Goebbels.
Christopher Hampton's play is based on the testimony she gave when she finally broke her silence to a group of Austrian filmmakers, shortly before she died in 2016.
Maggie Smith, alone on stage, plays Brunhilde Pomsel.
