Taken At Midnight

We’re thrilled to announce that Taken at Midnight has received three nominations in this year’s Olivier Awards. Many congratulations to writer Mark Hayhurst, director Jonathan Church, and Penelope Wilton, John Light and the entire cast and company.


Virgin Atlantic Best New Play – Taken at Midnight

“The debut play by Mark Hayhurst is an emotional and brutal drama telling the true story of Nazi-battling Irmgard Litten.”


Best Actress – Penelope Wilton

“Penelope Wilton’s harrowing and steely performance as a mother fighting for her incarcerated son in Nazi Germany was an unquestionable masterclass in acting.”


Best Actor in a Supporting Role – John Light

“As Gestapo officer Dr Conrad, John Light gave a striking, complex performance that was surprising, slick and ultimately horrendously chilling.”


The Olivier Awards take place on Sunday 12th April at the Royal Opera House.
