Returning to Ensemble Theatre after a sold out 2018 season, theatre legends John Bell and John Gaden reprise their roles in this unmissable production of Cyril Gély’s WWII thriller.
In 1944 at the Hôtel Meurice, the Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling and the German General, Dietrich von Choltitz meet in a life and death situation for the city of Paris.
On abandoning Paris, Hitler has ordered its destruction. Raoul has one night to persuade the General to leave the landmark city standing.
The many twists and turns of their negotiations play out in this highly entertaining thriller by Cyril Gély.
“Gaden is nimble as the witty, wily, urbane Nordling, drawing humour and humanity from the unorthodox consul…The power of Diplomacy is a reminder of the fragility of a culture that was so nearly forever lost.” The Sydney Morning Herald
“Watch two veterans of the Australian Theatre, John Bell and John Gaden, duelling in character with a smooth and well-honed confidence
and chemistry, fitting each other's character contrasting rhythms and musicalities with expert precision and respectful energies”
