A new play by Gail Louw
10th January – 4th February 2017
A new play by Gail Louw
starring FIONA RAMSAY and directed by JANNA RAMOS-VIOLANTE
BLONDE POISON reunites the exciting and creative talents of multi-award winning actress, Fiona Ramsay and director Janna Ramos-Violante, in a play about beauty, treachery and the high price of survival.
Fiona plays Stella Goldschlag, who lives illegally in war-torn Berlin. When offered the chance of saving herself and her family from the death camps, she becomes a “greifer” or “catcher” for the Gestapo, giving information on Jews in hiding. She was dubbed the Marilyn Monroe of Berlin and awarded the alias, BLONDE POlSON by the Nazis, as she embroiled herself in the murky word of espionage.
Playwright Gail Louw, is a former South African now living in the UK.
BLONDE POISON has already received critical international acclaim in London and Australia.
