SUMMARY

1933, the Nazis force Paul Renner, typographer and creator of Futura font, into internal exile. 2012, a theatre company, who shall not be named, do the same to actor Toby Williams. There was meant to be a play. About Paul Renner. About typeface. Historicism. The Weimar. The rise of mechanization. Nazis. The future. But this play does not exist. The performance that should have been Toby's making has become his undoing. This is his chance to explain where it all went wrong. Script in Hand is the story of two forgotten men.
