May 1945: victory in Europe and a Labour landslide in the UK.
English traitor John Amery is arrested in Italy and brought back to London for trial.
If convicted, he faces the death penalty. But his father is a senior politician. Surely the Establishment will look after its own. Based on an extraordinary true story, "An English Tragedy" is a disturbing tale of wartime treason and conflicting loyalties by Ronald Harwood, author of the "OscarA"[registered] winning screenplay for "The Pianist", and stage plays including "The Dresser", "Taking Sides" and "Quartet". "An English Tragedy" premiered at Watford Palace Theatre in February, 2008.
