The Plot

Europe, 1941. Pandora is at war and people are disappearing, people who are different. Dictator Heidi has a doppelganger – Brian, a decorator. When Brian’s sister Hanna goes missing, Brian discovers a terrible secret at his local hospital. In a bizarre case of mistaken identity, fate offers Brian the chance to change history….

Drawing on recent historical episodes, ‘The Great Dictator’ asks is how we treat the vulnerable a measure of our humanity? Based on Charlie Chaplin’s masterpiece of the same name, Stage Beyond interrogates what happens when society treats disability like a crime and people with disabilities like criminals.

Venue: Millennium Forum, 3 Newmarket St, Londonderry BT48 6EB
: £10.00, £8.00 available from the Millennium Forum
