Albert Speer archivePlucked from obscurity to be Hitler's favourite architect and later promoted to Minister of Armaments and War Production, Albert Speer became the second most powerful man in Nazi Germany, and the closest thing Hitler had to a friend. Having narrowly escaped hanging at the Nuremberg war crimes trial, Speer emerged from twenty years in Spandau prison, as he thought, a changed man. But even as he published his best-selling accounts of the Third Reich, the extent of his complicity in Nazi crimes returned to haunt him. David Edgar's panoramic adaptation of Gitta Sereny's definitive and magisterial biography tells the epic story of a man whose devotion to Hitler blinded him to the worst crime of the twentieth-century. With support from NT New Drama Circle.
