Arrows & Traps Theatre announce The White Rose: The Story of Sophie Scholl as their new production, along with full casting
Seven-time Off West End Award Nominated Arrows & Traps Theatre have announced their return to the Brockley Jack Theatre after their sold-out run of Chekhov’s Three Sisters earlier this year. There, they will present The White Rose: The Story of Sophie Scholl, written & directed by Ross McGregor.
Based on a true story, The White Rose recounts the final days of Sophie Scholl, a 21-year-old student, who led the only major act of German civil disobedience during the Second World War. Sophie, along with her brother Hans, published underground anti-Nazi leaflets calling for the peaceful overthrow of Hitler.
This timely and provocative play tells her story and explores the role that German citizens played in the rise of Hitler. This play examines the moral strength and courage that led a group of young people to risk their lives for a righteous, dangerous cause.
This production marks the 75th anniversary of Sophie Scholl’s execution.
And maintaing Arrows & Traps ensemble ethos, the cast contains many a familiar face: Cornelia Baumann (Else Gebel), Freddie Cambanakis (Fritz Hartnagel), Lucy Ioannou (Sophie Scholl), Conor Moss (Alexander Schmorell), Will Pinchin (Hans Scholl), Pearce Sampson (Christoph Probst), Alex Stevens (Willi Graf), Christopher Tester (Robert Mohr) and Beatrice Vincent (Traute Lafrenz).
