The Australian premier production of Address Unknown will play at Sydney’s Seymour Centre between October 14-November 7.

When ADDRESS UNKNOWN was first published as a novella in 1938, the New York Times called it ‘the most effective indictment of Nazism to appear in fiction.’ Set in 1932, ADDRESS UNKNOWN chronicles the friendship between two business partners in a successful San Francisco gallery. One, a German-born Aryan, returns to Germany and becomes active with the National Socialists; the other, a German Jew, remains to run the gallery.


Letters between the two men reveal the ideological divide between the former friends and the truth about Germany’s new order. Under the influence of Nazism, one commits a cowardly act of betrayal, and his former friend exacts an ingenious and deadly revenge.
