Max Reinhardt, one of the greatest impresarios of theatrical history, has a lifelong ambition - to dissolve the boundary between theatre and the world it portrays. Each year at the Saltzburg Festival he directed a famous morality play, Everyman, about God sending Death to summon a representative of mankind for judgement. The victim he chooses is a man who, like Reinhardt rejoice in his wealth and all the pleasures that money can buy. Then in 1938 Hitler declates his own day of reckoning and dends Death into Austria - where upon Reinhardt, a Jew is left naked and vulnerable as Everyman himself.
