Based on Aharon Appelfeld’s novel, Badeheim 1939 is an allegorical satire that tells the story of a Jewish resort in Austria that hosts a yearly arts festival, organised by Dr. Pappenheim. Slowly the “Sanitations Department” begins to shut the town and prepare the residents for the move to Eastern Europe. It is 1939 and amid swirls of unidentified rumours the community struggle to understand what is happening to them. This production will feature the entire company of final year actors with Guildhall musicians performing together in a large ensemble.
