This timely revival of Michael Frayn’s stylish and sharp-witted thriller comes to The Old Vic after its highly acclaimed run at Sheffield Theatres. Democracy takes us into a world of political intrigue, espionage and betrayal. Based on real life events during the final months in office of the charismatic West German Chancellor Willy Brandt, this political tale unfolds as suspicions rise of a Stasi spy infiltrating his inner circle. Tensions mount as Brandt’s precarious coalition government is pushed to its limits.
Winner of the Evening Standard Award and Critics’ Circle Best Play awards, Democracy is a thrilling portrayal of a political visionary who changed the face of German politics.
