Did Hitler's daughter really exist?
Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry
Based on the book by Jackie French
This award-winning show tells the story of Hitler’s Daughter through the eyes of four Australian children Mark, Ben, Anna and Tracey. As the friends wait for the school bus in country Australia one rainy morning, Anna begins to tell the tale of Heidi, daughter of the most hated man in history. As Mark becomes engrossed in Anna’s story, the play switches between 1940s Nazi Germany and contemporary Australia.
Today, in an age of fake news and fact manipulation, extreme ideologies and rising nationalism, there has never been a more important and relevant time to present this work.
Ages 10 – 14
