At Amphibian Stage, Hans & Sophie Is a Moving Story of Nazi Resistance
“DFW is lucky to have this lovingly crafted production. Through it, we can witness the heroism of Hans and Sophie Scholl while also enjoying high-caliber theater. The significance of the Scholls’ history is made all the more real to us by a truly beautiful production, its beauty commensurate with its message of human bravery and sacrifice.”

In its world premiere at Amphibian Stage, Hans & Sophie compresses youthful heroism and tragedy into a riveting one-act about German siblings who defied Hitler.
“The piercing scenes of this remarkable play will stay with you much longer than the show itself, and remind you that the mantra “silence equals complicity” is still not ready to be retired”
“It’s theater at its white-knuckled best.”
“The two-hander comes alive because the actors envelop us in the chemistry they create together. Hudock and Brockman are charming and vivid as individuals, and heart wrenching as a brother and sister with a loving connection, both spiritual and historical.”
