Maggie Smith returns to the stage for the first time in twelve years to play Brunhilde Pomsel.

A German Life will run from 6 April 2019 until 11 May 2019 at the Bridge Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

“I had no idea what was going on. Or very little. No more than most people. So you can’t make me feel guilty.”

Brunhilde Pomsel’s life spanned the twentieth century. She struggled to make ends meet as a secretary in Berlin during the 1930s, her many employers including a Jewish insurance broker, the German Broadcasting Corporation and, eventually, Joseph Goebbels. Christopher Hampton’s play is based on the testimony she gave when she finally broke her silence to a group of Austrian filmmakers, shortly before she died in 2016.

WHO’S IN IT? A German Life CAST

Maggie Smith will appear alone, on stage in A German Life. In a career spanning over 60 years, Maggie Smith has been the recipient of two Academy Awards, five BAFTAs, four Emmys, nine Evening Standard awards and a Tony.
