“Killing Hitler” by Bernard Adams – a review

by Rebecca Leigh


For its duration, the intimate chapel at Nuffield College will become your TARDIS, transporting you through time and space to the events on British and German soil that lead to the staging of one of the most daring plot of the German resistance in the Second World War.

Sensitive direction and sound production, involving acting and maximisation of the space available, makes Killing Hitler fully immersive for the audience. The bilingualism and beautiful set finish the effect, making for a tasteful and flavoursome picture of Adam von Trott’s 1944 attempt on the life of the Führer. The professionally minded cast and crew, with notable Oriel involvement, recreate the atmosphere of tension and terror that existed in wartime Europe.

Killing Hitler is a play not to be missed.


Killing Hitler is playing at the Chapel, Nuffield College, 7:45pm Tuesday 12th May – Saturday 16th(2pm)
