Background


WINNER of The Scotsman Fringe First Award

Synopsis


Europe is fractured; economies faltering.


Anti-Semitism and right-wing populism are surging.


The world's biggest sporting event is threatened with a boycott.


The year is 1936, and fencer Helene Mayer has been selected as the Nazi's token Jewish athlete for the Berlin Games.


But she is about to find she is fighting for more than just gold …


Based on a true story, Games is a cautionary tale for our troubled times, by three-time Fringe First winner Henry Naylor, 'one of our best new playwrights' (The Times).
