Monkey Baa Theatre Company

Hitler's

Winner – 2007 Helpmann Award– Best Children’s Presentation Winner – 2007 APACA Drover Award for Touring Excellence Winner – 2006 Drover Special Panel Award Winner – 2011 Glug Award

This award-winning show tells the story of Hitler’s Daughter through the eyes of four Australian children Mark, Ben, Anna and Tracey. As the friends wait for the school bus on a rainy morning in the Australian countryside, they take it in turns to tell stories.
On this particular morning, Anna tells a story about a young girl, Heidi, whose father was one of the most notorious men of the twentieth century. As the story jumps between Germany in the 1940s and the Australian bush in the present day, each of the characters is confronted with issues of morality, personal responsibility
and humanity.

Could Heidi have stopped the atrocities of genocide, war and hate her father raged on the world during WWII? Would he have acted differently in her place? Heidi’s story leads him to question his own identity and the world around him.

Excursion Package: Hitler’s Daughter & Sydney Jewish Museum
(You must be booked in to the show to be able to book this excursion package)

Monkey Baa is partnering with Sydney Jewish Museum to provide students with a unique cross-cultural experience during the show’s run. Students can attend both a performance of Hitler’s Daughter at Monkey Baa in Darling Harbour and a visit to Sydney Jewish Museum for an interactive session that includes personal testimony from a child survivor of the Holocaust and an age appropriate tour of Museum.

The interactive session will focus on artefacts in the museum and the issues raised by the novel. This session will allow teachers to deepen students’ understanding of the novel and the play by providing a rich historical and personal backdrop.
