Australian theatre royalty, Robyn Nevin gives the performance of her career in the critically acclaimed play by Academy Award winner Christopher Hampton, A German Life. Directed by stage luminary Neil Armfield and the hit of the 2021 Adelaide Festival, A German Life is a theatrical tour-de-force about one ordinary woman’s extraordinary experiences during the Second World War.
The Australian called it “An extraordinary solo performance” and the Adelaide Advertiser said “Robyn Nevin delivers a defining moment in her acting career”. “Genius” said the Australian Financial Review and The Saturday Paper hailed it as “A pitch-perfect solo performance”.
In this Australian premiere, Robyn Nevin plays Brunhilde Pomsel, an unassuming woman with good shorthand skills who, almost by chance, came to work in Joseph Goebbels’ Propaganda Ministry. Innocent or culpable? That’s the question at the heart of A German Life, a searching play that probes confronting questions for contemporary audiences.
