In 1941, Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s deputy, bails out over Scotland on a self- appointed mission of peace. Immediately imprisoned, then sentenced to life at Nuremberg. In this haunting one man play, Hess supposes what he might say to an audience about himself, the Third Reich and the world we have created since then. How much has really changed?
Gilded Balloon revives Michael Burrell’s award-winning play, Hess, directed by Kim Kinnie and starring Derek Crawford Munn.
