The Ice Front

During the German occupation of Norway in 1943, the actors of the Norwegian National Theatre found themselves in an uneasy truce with Norwegian Nazi cultural authorities. They retained their jobs, and continued to act in good plays. But when they were ordered to perform in a Nazi propaganda piece, their loyalties as patriots and humanists were called into question. How to stop a bad play from opening? When does an artist decide risk his or her life?
