Taken At Midnight opens at the Haymarket in January 2015 and you can get tickets for the first 12 performances from only £15.

Following critical acclaim and a sold-out season at Chichester Festival TheatreJonathan Church’s world premiere production of Taken At Midnight by Mark Hayhurst will transfer to Theatre Royal Haymarket from 15th January.

Penelope Wilton originates the role of Irmgard, the 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.

The unquestionable love of a mother for her son is at the heart of this compelling new play. Fearless and indomitable she confronts his captors at enormous personal risk to fight for his release against the seemingly impossible might of the Nazi regime.
