This one-man show is an imagined solitary hour of rumination by the Fuehrer before his suicide in the Berlin bunker. It is culled from his own words and historical sources. His thoughts range over his past, present and future in moods that veer from extreme violence to lyricism, jocular reminiscence to brutal rage, touching affection to murderous hate. His themes are world history, the arts, women, Stalin and Churchill, the British Empire, dear friends, total war and the Jews. And many other subjects that seethe in the ferocious melting pot of his mind. ‘Extraordinary achievement’ ★★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com). Ages 16+.
