It only takes one voice to resist.

Caught by the Nazis distributing forbidden leaflets, Sophie Scholl is facing execution. Only one route remains: confession and betrayal of everything she stood for… but will she take it? What would you be willing to die for?

Nominated for a 2023 CATS award for best production for children and young people Storm Lantern is a timely examination of the final hours of Sophie Scholl at a moment in history when the forces of fascism are on the rise once more.

Storm Lantern is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
