The Fifth Column

Ernest Hemingway’s The Fifth Column is staged at the Southwark Playhouse this March, giving audiences the chance to witness the only play penned by the master of prose.

Published as part of an anthology called The Fifth Column And The First Forty-Nine Stories in 1938, The Fifth Column takes audiences back to the Spanish Civil War, a well known topic for the writer, as we meet people surviving amongst the struggle.

It is set in Madrid in the late 1930s and it is here that we meet the American war correspondents, including the character of Philip Rawlings, as they fall in love as the city is torn apart around them.

Ernest Hemingway was one of the great writers of the 20th century, penning numerous iconic books that continue to move and astound audiences in the 21st century. From The Sun Also Rises right up to The Old Man And The Sea, he managed to grip readers with her distinctive style and his Pulitzer Prize win was thusly deserved. His other books included For Whom The Bell Tolls (which also covered the Spanish Civil War) and A Farewell To Arms.

The Fifth Column is at the Southwark Playhouse from Thursday 24th March 2016.
