Fear and Misery of the Third Reich

By Bertolt Brecht, Translated by John Willett
Directed by Stefan Escreet

Probably the most naturalistic of Brecht's plays, Fear and Misery of the Third Reich offers a series of vignettes that allow for a glimpse into the harsh realities of life in Nazi Germany during the 1930s. Neatly woven so as to create a multi-faceted whole, the play captures the sense of paranoia, deception, fear and betrayal that came to characterize one of the most challenging periods in 20th Century European History.
