Synopsis


A bracing evocation of life under fascism is brought to the stage by Oscar-winning dramatist Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement).


When a teacher reprimands a student for a racist comment, he stands accused of 'sabotage of the Fatherland'.


His students revolt, and a murder follows.


The teacher must face his role in it, even if it costs him everything.


Written in exile while in flight from the Nazis, Youth Without God is the last book by Ödön von Horváth, one of the 20th century's great but forgotten writers.


Portraying a world of individual ruthlessness and collective numbness, it's a story as relevant today as ever before.
