DEATH OF A HUNTER
DEATH OF A HUNTER is a newly commissioned English-language adaptation of Rolf Hochhuth’s 1975 one-man play TOD EINES JÄGERS, a theatrical exploration of Ernest Hemingway’s final hour.
On a trip to Hamburg in 2016, And Tomorrow founders Edmund Dehn and Anthony Shrubsall saw Torsten Münchow’s performance as Hemingway in Peter Thiers’ German-language adaptation of Hochhuth’s epic play.
Returning to England, and encouraged by Münchow, Thiers and Hochhuthhimself, Edmund and Anthony commissioned writer and translator Peter Sutton to translate the script into English.
DEATH OF A HUNTER previewed at Theater Auf’m Kahn in Berlin in September 2017,
in repertoire with Torsten Münchow's performance of the German-language version, directed by Anthony and with Edmund in the lead role.
It received its UK premiere on 2nd April 2018, directed by Anthony Shrubsall and produced by Sarah Lawrie in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre in West London.
In Spring 2019, it played at the Brighton Fringe Festival to 4 * reviews and in Autumn 2020 it streamed for a month on the Finborough Theatre’s YouTube channel.
