Known for his award-winning work Larkin with Women, Ben Brown is the writer of The End of the Night which is debuting in London’s Park Theatre for a limited time. He is even known for writing the award-winning play Three Days in May which won the WhatsOnStage Award for Best New Play.Director Alan Strachan joins Ben Brown again for this production after working together on Three Days in May and A Splinter of Ice. The cast list includes Ben Caplan who plays Norbert Masur, the World Jewish Congress representative along with Richard Clothier as the powerful Nazi Heinrich Himmler. Dr. Felix Kersten’s role is played by Michael Lumsden.
A covert meeting between a member of the World Jewish Congress and one of Germany's most influential Nazis takes place in the final days of World War II, and Hitler is completely unaware of it.
A meeting between one of the Holocaust's main architects and Norbert Masur, a Jewish member of the World Jewish Congress is arranged. This secret rendezvous may have the potential to change Himmler's plans for the war's end and even influence him into turning his loyalties away from the Führer and onto a new tactic that could save thousands of Jewish lives.
As the war begins to come to a bloody closure with thousands of lives hanging in the balance, Dr. Kersten and Masur toil to persuade Heinrich Himmler Hitler to go against Hitler's harsh and unrelenting order that no Jewish people should survive by the time the regime comes to an end. This riveting new play deals with the subject of the Holocaust and while the play is anxious it is also equally engaging.
