Hitler's Daughter
Perfect for those little history buffs!

As four friends wait for the school bus in country Australia one rainy morning, Anna begins to tell the intriguing tale of Heidi, daughter of the most hated man in history. This highly celebrated play, showing at The Joan on Friday 30 August at 7.30pm, tells the story of Hitler’s daughter through the eyes of four Australian schoolkids.

Based on the book by Jackie French, Hitler’s Daughter is a multi-award winning, 60-minute theatre work for 10-17 year olds that poses powerful questions about society’s prejudices in a fresh, compelling light.

Today, in an age of fake news and fact manipulation, extreme ideologies and rising nationalism, there has never been a more important and relevant time to present this work. Hitler’s Daughter asks its young audiences to question the reality of truth, and notions of personal responsibility and prejudice.

After the play, the audience is left with the lingering question; Did Hitler’s Daughter really exist?

The 2019 tour to the nation’s regional venues will be Monkey Baa’s second national tour of this important and impactful work. It was also the company’s first production to tour internationally to 19 venues in the USA in 2013.

Don’t miss it when it heads to The Joan on Friday on 30 August at 7.30pm – a perfect night out for you and the kids!

Suitable for ages 10 – 17
