Taking Sides archiveThe moral risks of misjudging history are looked at in this moving drama. Can any artist ever claim to be above politics? In occupied Berlin 1946, amongst the rubble of war an American Army interrogator confronts one of the 20th Century's greatest orchestral conductors - Wilhelm Furtwangler - with this fundamental, timeless question. Collaboration and Taking Sides are two companion pieces by Ronald Harwood, separate plays which complement one another.
Performers Michael Pennington (Wilhelm Furtwanglar), Martin Hutson (David Wills), Melanie Jessop (Tamara Sachs), Pip Donaghy (Helmuth Rode), Sophie Roberts (Emmi Straube), David Horovitch (Major Arnold).
Author Ronald Harwood. Producer Minerva Theatre. Director Philip Franks. Design Simon Higlett. Lighting Mark Jonathan. Music Matthew Scott (soundtrack). Sound John Leonard. Costume Bill Butler. Design Gerry Bunzl (assistant).
