When we die, what do we leave behind?

Unable to write anymore, Ernest Hemingway fights his last and loneliest battle as he tries to find the courage to commit suicide. He confronts his demons, questions old certainties and comes face to face with the ghosts of his past...

Clinically, precisely, harrowingly and in real time, radical German playwright Rolf Hochhuth explores the final hour in the life of an American icon, examining the cult of celebrity, the trappings of fame and “the ultimate futility with which we are all cursed and ‘blessed’”.

UK and English language premiere of Hochhuth's play in an adaptation by Peter Thiers.

“Dehn portrays the novelist exactly as one imagines him... it feels like Hemingway himself has come back from the grave. ”
