A German LifeDame Maggie Smith returns to the stage for the first time in twelve years to star in a solo show based on the testimony of Goebbels's secretary, Brunhilde Pomsel. A German Life, brought to the Bridge Theatre under the direction of Jonathan Kent, is a new play by Christopher Hampton drawn from the life and testimony of Brunhilde Pomsel. She struggled to make ends meet as a secretary in Berlin during the 1930s, her many employers including a Jewish insurance broker, the German Broadcasting Corporation and, eventually, Joseph Goebbels. She finally broke her silence shortly before she died in 2017 to a group of Austrian filmmakers, resulting in their documentary of the same name.

About The Bridge Theatre

What Nicholas Hytner did next: after 12 years as director of the National Theatre, the theatre chief is building a theatre from the ground up. Designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins, winner of the 2014 Stirling Prize for architecture for the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool, the Bridge Theatre brings theatre into the 21st century, offering theatre-makers a platform to create adventurous new work, and giving audiences a modern 900-seat adaptable theatre - capable of staging traditional, in-the-round and promenade performances.
