Alone in Berlin is Dutch spoken
English surtitles on November 20th, 27th and December 4th

During the Second World War, the working-class Quangel couple loses their only son at the front. That makes them decide to undertake a bizarre act of sabotage. In public buildings in Berlin – on window sills and in staircases – they leave handwritten postcards with clumsily formulated anti-Hitler slogans. When several of the cards however find their way to the Gestapo, a murderous cat and mouse game begins.

Fallada describes a motley collection of characters who try to cope with the crisis: petty thief, the

informer, the more, the alcoholic Obergruppenführer. Everyone fights for themselves and some also fight for another

For this larger number of characters, alongside a small ensemble of professional actors, 27 guest actors from the whole of Limburg have been taken on. In a dynamic, narrative acting style, interlaced with live music, the guest director Aike Dirkzwager reconstructs this fascinating story with them. Based on the true story of the courageous Berlin working couple Otto and Elise Hampel.
