After a sold out 2018 season, theatre legends John Bell and John Gaden reprise their roles in this unmissable production of Cyril Gély’s high-stakes 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.

Ensemble Theatre’s commission of the translation & adaptation of DIPLOMACY was made possible by the generous support of Jinnie and Ross Gavin.
