The End of the Night

By Ben Brown
Directed by Alan Strachan

'Compellingly told Second World War story... minutely researched, highly compelling' ★★★★ The Stage


Show Info

In the final days of World War II, a secret meeting takes place between a member of the World Jewish Congress and one of the most powerful Nazis in Germany – without Hitler's knowledge.

Dr. Felix Kersten, Himmler’s trusted personal physiotherapist, uses his unique position of influence to facilitate a meeting between the architect of The Holocaust and Swedish Jew Norbert Masur. A meeting that could turn Himmler’s thoughts away from the downfall of the Third Reich and towards a course of action that could save thousands of lives.

With battle lines crumbling and lives in the balance, the two men must try to find a way to persuade Himmler to release the last surviving concentration camp prisoners contrary to Hitler’s orders that no Jew should outlast the regime.

Ben Caplan (Call the Midwife) plays World Jewish Congress representative Norbert Masur alongside Richard Clothier (Young Wallander) as prominent Nazi Heinrich Himmler and Michael Lumsden (The Archers) as physiotherapist Felix Kersten. Completing the cast are Audrey Palmer (The Mousetrap) and Olivia Bernstone (Birdsong, Original Theatre).

From the writer of Three Days In May (WhatsOnStage Best New Play Award) and A Splinter of Ice and directed by Alan Strachan, The End of the Night is a tense and absorbing new drama based on a true story.

Filmed at Park Theatre, London. 

Trigger warning: This production features explicit discussion of the Holocaust and contains antisemitic language.
