Bitter Pill Theatre present their Edinburgh hit Big Brother Blitzkrieg at the King’s Head Theatre, which sees Adolf Hitler enter the Big Brother House.
After a botched suicide attempt, Adolf Hitler awakes to find himself in the Big Brother House. Confused by his situation and surrounded by some of the most loathsome individuals he’s ever met, he struggles to come to terms with the world of reality television.
Join Adolf on the journey of a lifetime as he makes friends, faces demons and finds his true voice. But will he win over the hearts and minds of the viewers in the process?
Writers and directors Hew Rous Eyre & Max Elton say “Big Brother Blitzkrieg is a response to anti-politics and celebrity worship. Considering relative extremists like Donald Trump and his successful penetration of the political mainstream, perhaps we’ve not advanced as much as we think we have. We live in an era of fame, hashtags and Boris Johnson so let’s not get complacent.”
“a head-turning premise (…) clever nods to history” Entertainmentwise
"hilarious and disturbing by turns, the writing is tight, the performances on point and the climax genuinely chilling" Artwhacked
