Hitler’s Daughter – Year 7 to 9 perform on 3 and 4 May
Year 7 to 9 Acting production
Our Year 7 – 9 Acting stream is proud to present Hitler’s Daughter, an important Australian play adapted by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry from the prize-winning novel by Jackie French.
A bus stop in the pouring rain on a small, country road. Four students pass the time telling stories, waiting to be taken to school. One morning, Anna starts a story about a little girl named Heidi: she lives with a nanny in a big house in Austria, feeds the ducks in the pond and plays with her dolls. Her father is one of history’s most terrible monsters.
Hitler’s Daughter merges the past and the present as it puts its characters’ morals to the test. What would they have done in Heidi’s situation? How might they have acted differently? And are such questions really only left in the past?
Hitler’s Daughter has a running time of approximately 70 minutes without intermission and is suitable for ages 9 and above. This production contains adult themes relating to the Second World War, the Holocaust and genocide and contains some instances of loud sound effects and flashing lights.
