Win tickets to see THE FIFTH COLUMN at the Southwark Playhouse

The Fifth Column at the Southwark Playhouse


A play by Ernest Hemingway

80 years on from the start of the Spanish Civil War, a play by one of the greatest writers of the 20th century appears in London for the first time.

Ernest Hemingway was in Madrid in 1937, during Franco’s siege, and wrote The Fifth Column there, under that bombardment.

Philip Rawlings, a spy-catcher and covert member of the International Brigade, is engaged in a life-and-death struggle to unmask Fifth Columnists inside the besieged city. He is also passionately in love with a female war correspondent living in the hotel.

Around them, the people of Madrid are trying, often comically, to survive; and the idealism of the young men under him, who came to fight with the International Brigades, is contrasted with the ruthlessness of civil war.
