In the late 1930s, the illustrious actor Michael Redgrave became close friends with the celebrated poet Stephen Spender. Through their families’ notebooks, journals and memoirs, and Stephen’s poems, Vanessa Redgrave discovers the love affairs that they remembered, and the hopes and fears of a generation that confronted the rise of fascism in Europe. Among these was the German writer, Thomas Mann.

As Stephen’s love and respect for a young American woman studying psychology in Vienna grew deeper, he and his secretary Tony Hyndman tried to assist her in obtaining false visas and passports for socialist Jews and their families to escape from fascist Austria.

The play highlights the affectionate and intimate thoughts of individuals during these years of political and social disaster.

Written, devised and performed by Olivier, Tony and Academy Award winner, Vanessa Redgrave, one of the greatest actors of her generation. She is joined on stage by a cast including Robert BoulterLucy Doyle and Paul Hilton.
