A awesome exploration of personality and sense of right and wrong from the writer of COPENHAGEN, set amid the tensions of Sixties Berlin

In Democracy, Michael Frayn once more creates out of the identified occasions of twentieth-century heritage a drama of outstanding urgency and subtlety, reimagining the interactions and motivations of Willy Brandt as he turned chancellor of West Germany in 1966 and people of his political circle, together with Günter Guillaume, a functionary who grew to become Brandt's own assistant-and who was once finally uncovered as an East German undercover agent in a discovery that helped strength Brandt from workplace. yet what situations allowed Brandt to turn into the 1st left-wing chancellor in 40 years? And why, given his innovative guidelines, did the East German mystery police think it essential to plant a undercover agent in his workplace and threat bringing down his govt?
Michael Frayn writes in his postscript to the play, "Complexity is what the play is set: the complexity of human preparations and of people themselves, and the problems that this creates in either shaping and knowing our actions."
