Staring Penelope Wilton Taken At Midnight is a gripping drama based on the true story of the Litten family.

Penelope originates the role of Irmgard, mother of celebrated lawyer Hans Litten who, in 1931, put Hitler on the witness stand and wins. In 1933 when Hitler becomes Reich Chancellor, Litten suffers devastating consequences.

Commenting on the play Penelope said; “It’s very rare you get a script as beautifully written as this […] plays like this remind one what a democracy is and all those things we take for granted.”
