Making Theatre in Exile

14 November, 2019, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Delving into a suitcase full of sketches, songs and letters, the theatre group [Foreign Affairs] brings to life the little-known story of the Laterndl Theatre in Hampstead, established by a group of exiled actors and writers from Nazi-occupied Austria during the Second World War. Rekindling the Viennese tradition of political cabaret, they reflect on their new surroundings and hopes for the future and bring a beacon of light to the 30,000-strong traumatised refugee community. The Laterndl received wide critical acclaim and soon came to symbolise the community’s resistance to Nazi terror and assertion of an independent Austrian identity and culture.

‘Making Theatre in Exile’ re-discovers the Laterndl Theatre through the work of the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies on the Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Archive.

Performed in the original German and English. Doors open 20:00.

This performance will also take place at 20:30–21:30 on Thursday 14 November which needs to be booked separately.

In partnership with

[Foreign Affairs], Hampstead Jazz Club, Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Trust, Austrian Cultural Forum, Open World Research Initiative
