Nick Malinowski: The Captain of Kopenick

Date - 5 February, 2013, All News Press Nights Theatre

Nick Malinowski features in The Captain of Kopenick at the Olivier Theatre, National Theatre. This is a new English version of Carl Zuckmayer’s savagely funny comedy adapted by Ron Hutchinson.

Released after fifteen years in prison, trapped in a bureaucratic maze, petty criminal Wilhelm Voigt wanders 1910 Berlin in desperate, hazardous pursuit of identity papers. Luck changes when he picks up an abandoned military uniform in a fancy-dress shop and finds the city ready to obey his every command. At the head of six soldiers, he marches to the Mayor’s office, cites corruption and confiscates the treasury with ease. But still what he craves is official recognition that he exists.
