Summary

It’s Christmas Eve, 2017. A philosophy professor is on her way to celebrate with her family when she is hauled out of a taxi and bundled into an interrogation room. Opposite her, the senior officer is cynical, smart and relentless. Incriminating evidence has been found against her. Or has it? Is a terrorist attack imminent or is this a case of state paranoia? The clock ticks.

Daniel Kehlmann’s Christmas Eve , translated by Christopher Hampton, premiered at the Ustinov Theatre, Bath, in October 2017.
