Edinburgh Fringe 2019
Venue 32 Cowgate
Based on the true story of lone German Georg Elser who came within minutes of assassinating Hitler and saving sixty million souls destined to perish in World War Two.  Now a beer swilling, joke telling elderly ghost, he recounts how he tried to destroy the Nazi war machine. He searches for what made him say:
     No. You will not lead us into another war. I will stop you.
