  4. Full Cast Announced for Watch on the Rhine

Donmar Warehouse announces full casting for Lillian Hellman’s masterpiece, Watch on the Rhine.

It’s an indulgence to sit in a room and discuss your beliefs as if they were a juicy piece of gossip.

It is Summer 1941 and on a peaceful morning in a Washington D.C. living room, widow Fanny Farrelly anxiously awaits the return of her daughter and her German husband, fleeing Europe with their children. As night falls, dark secrets emerge, and this American sanctuary becomes even more dangerous than what they left behind. This is Lillian Hellman’s political masterpiece and the first major London revival of Watch on the Rhine in over 40 years.
