Jenny Lee directs Tom McNab's 1936. A thrilling take on the run up to the Berlin Olympics in 1936, seen through the eyes of American journalist William Shirer. The stakes were high, the game played out on the world stage. Hitler craved power and the German Jews were under threat. America was uneasy and the International Olympic Committee was dangerously out of touch... It all rested on the few... and the athletes, among them Jesse Owens. If America had pulled out, would WWII have taken place? A gripping piece of theatre with a 9 actor cast, playing out one of the most momentous occasions in world history.
