Eleven-time Off West End Award Nominated Arrows & Traps Theatre return to the Jack after their sold-out run of Dracula, with a five-week season of two brand new historical plays about a pair of remarkable female pioneers, performed in repertory by a single cast.

Synopsis


Paris, 1935.


Gerta Pohorylle, a young German refugee, meets Endre Friedmann, a young Hungarian in exile.


Both are artists, Jews and nonconformists.


Drawn to each other by a shared fervour for photography, they create a persona in order to better sell their work - and so the legendary Robert Capa is born.


But alongside their love of art, abides a fierce dedication to justice.


Putting everything at risk, they travel to Spain to document the brutal turmoil of the Civil War.


Here, in the midst of the peril and chaos, a romance for the ages is born.
