Judenfrei has just completed its second season, the 2011 run having been at the New End Theatre in Hampstead.
The passionate love story and the desperate dilemma of Hanna and Philipp, two gifted young lawyers, inspired by the exhibition LAWYERS WITHOUT RIGHTS that the Jewish Museum helped to sponsor last summer. Their problem? They just happen to be Jews in thirties Berlin. Soon they find that they are banned from practising their profession. The situation becomes more menacing. As the woman, Hanna is in the greater danger, Philipp offers her a way out - just one visa to Cuba where he has family. Her mother and sister pile on the guilt and she refuses the chance to flee. Then one night Philipp receives a mysterious telephone call from a total stranger. Is it a coded warning? His decision that night will change all their lives.
