Robyn Nevin plays Brunhilde Pomsel in this 90-minute solo tour de force. A self-described “apolitical women”, Pomsel worked as a secretary to Joseph Goebbels. Christopher Hampton fashioned the play from testimony she gave to documentary makers two years before she died, aged 105. Neil Armfield directs.

Read our review by Gordon Forester here.

When Maggie Smith premiered Christopher Hampton’s play A German Life in London in 2019, it won rave reviews, with The Guardian calling it “a triumph”. In what promises to be a highlight of this year’s Adelaide Festival, Robyn Nevin will perform the 90-minute solo tour de force, directed by Neil Armfield. Nevin plays Brunhilde Pomsel, a self-described “apolitical woman”, who worked as a secretary to Joseph Goebbels. Hampton fashioned his play from testimony that Pomsel gave to Austrian documentary makers when she was 103. She died aged 105 in January 2017. – Jo Litson, Limelight
