Theatre legends John Bell and John Gaden are starring in the edge-of-your-seat thriller, Diplomacy, at Glen Street Theatre from 23 - 27 July. 

Produced by Ensemble Theatre and Directed by John Bell, best known as the creator and former Artistic Director of Bell Shakespeare, this unmissable production sold out in its premiere run at the Ensemble Theatre in Sydney in 2018.

In 1944 at the Hôtel Meurice, the Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling and the German General, Dietrich von Choltitz meet in a life or 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
