The Maestro - Furtwängler and the Nazis

Directed by Tristram Powell, Produced by Honor Borwick

Jewish Book Week

Our latest special commission from Tristram Powell (Talking Heads) & Honor Borwick (The Favourite), based on Ronald Harwood’s Taking Sides, with a star cast featuring.


Taking Sides – the 1995 West End and Broadway hit written by Oscar-winning The Dresser playwright Ronald Harwood and originally directed by Harold Pinter – dramatises the great conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler’s ‘denazification’. Using extracts from the play and documentary evidence the latest specially commissioned production from Tristram Powell (Talking Heads) and Honor Borwick (The Favourite) presents the audience with the Furtwängler dilemma. They must judge whose side they would be on.

After previous sell-outs celebrating the work of Arthur Miller, Dorothy Parker, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala and Arthur Schnitzler, the cast for this unique staged reading includes National Theatre veteran Nicholas Jones (Darkest Hour, Kavanagh QC), Abigail Cruttendon (The Theory of EverythingNot Going Out), Radio 4 regular Tom Goodman-Hill (SpamalotEnron), Ilan Goodman (The Imitation Game, Bad Jews) and RADA graduate Florence Dobson.


Tristram Powell is a film and television director whose credits include adaptations of Philip Roth’s The Ghost Writer and Elizabeth Jane Howard’s Falling.

Honor Borwick has worked in the theatre, publishing, independent television and film, theatre, and radio as a script editor.
