Wiesenthal King's Head Theatre London

Written by Tom Dugan and directed by Mark Liebert, Wiesenthal is the true story of an ordinary man who did extraordinary things.

Filled with hope, humanity and humour, it is making its London debut at the King’s Head Theatre after an acclaimed, sell-out Edinburgh season in 2023.

Wiesenthal is based on the life of Simon Wiesenthal who survived the Holocaust and devoted the rest of his life to bringing Nazi war criminals to justice.

Intelligent, funny, flawed and noble, Wiesenthal was a universal hero. His unbelievable dedication and tenacity over decades is honoured in this play, which takes place on his final day in his Vienna office in 2003.
