If Michael Frayn's Democracy, just opened at the NT Cottesloe, has given you a taste for post-war German morality dramas, get ready for a second dose. Ronald Harwood's Taking Sides, set in US-occupied Berlin in 1946, is all set for a major revival, which launches a regional tour next month and is already being tipped for a West End transfer in 2004 (See Today's News). Like Democracy, which revolves around former West German chancellor Willy Brandt, Harwood's play is inspired by the actions of a real-life figure, the German conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler, whose tolerance towards the Nazi regime was questioned by the American victors after the war. Neil Pearson and Julian Glover star in Deborah Bruce's new production.
