Hitler’s Daughter

This award-winning show tells the story of Hitler’s Daughter through the eyes of four Australian children Mark, Ben, Anna and Tracey. As the friends wait for the school bus in country Australia one rainy morning Anna begins to tell the tale of Heidi, daughter of the most hated man in history. The play switches between 1940’s Nazi Germany and contemporary Australia as one of the friends, Mark, becomes engrossed in Anna’s story.

Could Heidi have stopped the atrocities of genocide, war and hate her father raged on the world during World War II? Would he have acted differently in her place? Heidi’s story leads him to question his own identity and the world around him. Hitler’s Daughter opened in 2006 and continues to go from strength to strength.
