In 1944 at the Hôtel Meurice, the
Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling
and the German General, Dietrich
von Choltitz meet in a life and
death situation for the city of Paris.
On abandoning Paris, Hitler has
ordered its destruction. Raoul
has one night to persuade the
General to leave the landmark
city standing. The many twists
and turns of their high-stakes
negotiations play out in this highly
entertaining thriller by Cyril Gély.
A brand new adaptation of the award
winning French play DIPLOMATIE
commissioned by Ensemble Theatre,
this marks the first time DIPLOMACY
has been performed in Australia.
We’re very proud to be working
with theatre legends John Bell and
John Gaden to bring this groundbreaking
production to life.
