Production images have been released for Vienna 1934 – Munich 1938, written, directed by and starring Vanessa Redgrave at Theatre Royal Bath.
Inspired by the close friendship of her father Michael Redgrave and the celebrated poet Stephen Spender, Redgrave has created an evening of personal reminiscence and poetry in which to examine the hopes and fears of a generation confronting the rise of fascism in Europe.

She also received Tony nominations for The Year of Magical Thinking and Driving Miss Daisy and is a six-time Oscar nominee, winning for Julia.
