Hitler's Daughter

Hitler's Daughter

A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production
Based on the book by Jackie French

The play begins early morning somewhere in the Australian countryside. Four children wait for the school bus and they decide to play a game; a simple game of story-telling. As they shelter in the bus stop from a raging storm Anna creates an intriguing story and simultaneously on stage we begin to hear the bombing of Berlin and we see Heidi crawl from a bunker. With a large birthmark across her face, we discover that Heidi is the disfigured daughter of Hitler. Caught in the turmoil of war, she is hidden away by her father, one of the most dreaded men in history.

Back at the bus shelter Mark becomes so engrossed in Anna’s story; he begins to wonder how it would feel to be the child of someone as evil as Hitler. As the play evolves, Mark’s search for truth in a world of half-truths becomes clearer and the story culminates in the bombing of Berlin, the fall of the Third Reich and the end of Heidi’s innocence.

Hitler’s Daughter poses powerful questions and examines moral issues in relation to society’s fears and prejudices.

“…it was perhaps the most extraordinary moment of my life. To go into that theatre, to see the book I had written, to see the words I had written, the characters I had created so entirely transmogrified into something richer and different… to my utter surprise I found myself sitting there with the rest of the audience with the tears running down my face….” Jackie French – Author of Hitler’s Daughter
