The Man in the Attic: experimentation in the rehearsal room
Award-winning play The Man in the Attic tells an astonishing, true story: a German couple, having sheltered a Jew during WWII, decide not to tell him the war is over and continue to profit from his captivity. But as the husband overplays his hand and the wife becomes trapped in a conflict between greed and humanity, the Jew realises that something has changed… Experience the rehearsal process, as actor Barry French tackles one monologue and the director responds. Join the playwright, director and actors as they discuss theatrical choices and the play’s themes.
