Christopher Hampton’s new version of

JUDGMENT DAY by Ödön von Horváth It’s just another normal day at a small town station where a handful of passengers are waiting for the stopping train. Then Thomas Hudetz, the well-liked station master, is momentarily distracted by a young woman and seconds later eighteen people are dead. Standing in the wreckage of the 405 Express train, can Thomas accept the truth that is hurtling towards him and if not, how long can he postpone the day of judgment?

PERFORMANCES: 3 September 2009 – 17 October 2009 at 7.30pm

Now widely recognised as the equal of Brecht in his chronicling of 1930s Germany and the rise of fascism, Ödön von Horváth’s penultimate play is a vividly characterised portrayal of a society that refuses to take responsibility for its actions.
