A tale of espionage, loyalty, unexpected betrayals and the paths we choose in life. Set in West Germany in the late 1960s – a time of hope and unlimited possibilities – “Democracy” charts the astonishing career of Willy Brandt, in his brief but remarkable tenure as Germany’s first liberal leader in nearly forty years.

For The Record:

 

“Democracy” originally opened at the National’s Cottesloe Theatre in August, 2003, and then transferred to the Wyndhams, in the West End, where it opened on Apr 20, 2004.
