A printing press, spray paint, and quick wit were all siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl needed to build the largest underground resistance movement in Nazi Germany. Drawing on inspiration from letters, diaries and coded correspondences in the book At The Heart of the White Rose, Hans & Sophie is an intimate two character portrait of resistance and conviction in the darkest of times, immersing audiences in the student’s metamorphosis from loyal Hitler Youth into one of the Nazi regime’s most feared oppositions.
Hans & Sophie, along with our broadcasts of #Anne Frank: Parallel Stories is part of a worldwide commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII.
In its world premiere at Amphibian Stage, Hans & Sophie compresses youthful heroism and tragedy into a riveting one-act about German siblings who defied Hitler...it's theater at its white-knuckled best.
