The UK and English language premiere "When we die, what do we leave behind?" Unable to write anymore, Ernest Hemingway fights his last and loneliest battle as he tries to find the courage to commit suicide. He confronts his demons, questions old certainties and comes face to face with the ghosts of his past... Clinically, precisely, harrowingly and in real time, radical German playwright Rolf Hochhuth explores the final hour in the life of an American icon, examining the cult of celebrity, the trappings of fame and "the ultimate futility with which we are all cursed and 'blessed'". Death of a Hunter is the fourth play by Rolf Hochhuth presented at the Finborough Theatre, following Soldiers, The Representative and Summer 14: A Dance of Death. Death of a Hunter opens on Hochhuth's 87th birthday, and features Edmund Dehn who appeared in the Finborough Theatre's very first production in 1980. On Tuesday 10 April at 2.00pm, German actor Torsten Munchow will perform Death of a Hunter in the original German.
