Hitler's Daughter

Based on the book by Jackie French

Did Hitler's daughter really exist?

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. Mark becomes engrossed in Anna's story, as the play switches between 1940s Nazi Germany and contemporary Australia.

Hitler's Daughter poses powerful questions and examines moral issues in relation to society's fears and prejudices. The audience is left with the lingering question, as Mark is: Did Hitler really have a daughter? Today, in an age of fake news and fact manipulation, extreme ideologies and rising nationalism, Hitler's Daughter demands its young audiences to question the reality of truth, and notions of personal responsibility and prejudice.

Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry
