DESCRIPTION:
West Germany, 1969. Charismatic Willy Brandt has been elected Chancellor. When Brandt ‘dares more democracy’, his own party conspires, plots and tries to destroy him.

As his enemies tighten the noose around his neck, Brandt believes the only man he can truly trust is Gunter Guillaume, his devoted personal assistant.

But in the world of political intrigue, espionage and betrayal, is anyone to be trusted? Shakespearean in scale but with all the twists and spins of modern politics, Democracy combines the fascination of a John Le Carre thriller with the dynamism of The West Wing and House of Cards.

This is the first Scottish tour of Michael Frayn’s award-winning, thought provoking and highly entertaining play.

 “Perfect timing for Michael Frayn’s seriously thrilling play”
