Sophie Scholl – The Final Days
August 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until August 24, 2019
Based on the Academy Award nominated movie of the same name, the play Sophie Scholl – The Final Days tells the true story of siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl, who form an anti-nazi resistance group in 1943, called The White Rose. Together with a group of friends from college, they resist the dictatorship by secretly printing and distributing anti-nazi leaflets, calling for a peaceful overthrow of Hitler. The play starts just before Sophie and Hans are apprehended while distributing leaflets at the University of Munich, and follows them through days of interrogation and imprisonment, all the way to their final trial. Most of the dialogue is taken directly from transcripts of the real interrogation protocols. In this provocative play, we witness Sophie and her friends as they are confronted with the choice of saving their own lives or standing up for what they most believe in.
