Description

Delving into a suitcase full of sketches, songs, letters and more, three actors from the theatre group [Foreign Affairs] explore the notion of making theatre in exile and what that means today. Set shortly before the outbreak of war in 1939, a group of exiled writers and actors from Nazi-occupied Austria start a theatre in London. By rekindling their Viennese tradition of political cabaret, they plan to bring a beacon of light to the bleak lives of a traumatised community. The Laterndl received wide acclaim and soon came to symbolise the community's resistance to Nazi terror and assertion of an independent Austrian national culture and identity. 

This event is sponsored by the Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Trust and the Austrian Cultural Forum London.

Tickets free. Advance online booking essential.
