A panoramic adaptation of Gita Sereny's definitive and magisterial biography of a man whose devotion to Hitler blinded him to the worst crime of the twentieth century.

Plucked from obscurity to be Hitler's architect and Minister of War, Albert Speer became the second most powerful man in Nazi Germany and the closest Hitler had to a friend. Having narrowly escaped hanging at Nuremberg, Speer emerged from twenty years at Spandau gaol, as he thought, a changed man. But even as he publishes his bestselling accounts of the Third Reich, the extent of his complicity in Nazi crimes returns to haunt him - and his long-suffering family.

'offers a clear-sighted examination of the psychology of guilt, denial and repentance, an unsqueamish and chilling dissection of a heart of darkness' - Mail on Sunday

'Monumental. An ambitious, intelligent and worthwhile play' - Financial Times
