Ilsa – I should like to know more about you.

This is a play where you the audience can decide what’s happening. It’s very interesting and in many ways quite sad. I have listened to the views of the actors but here is my take. Please note this is just my humble interpretation.

For me this is set at the very end of the Second World War in Nazi Germany. At first Hitler promised a better future for Germany, but for Ilsa and her husband Daniel, the cost was too high. Daniel gave himself up to save his wife, but ultimately it was for nothing. Now it is Ilsa’s turn to be tried as a traitor and probably executed. I guess Stefan has also betrayed his country in some way, but he is less forthcoming.

I love this play because it really makes you think, though I had to listen twice.
