Robert Harris on An Officer and a Spy, Kings Place

February 24, 2014 @ 8:30 pm

An Officer and a Spy is Robert Harris‘s compelling recreation of the Dreyfus Affair, a scandal that became the most famous miscarriage of justice in history.

Compelling, too, are the echoes for our modern world: an intelligence agency gone rogue, justice corrupted in the name of national security, a newspaper witch-hunt of a persecuted minority, and the old-age instinct of those in power to cover up their crimes.

Harris has brought his talent for historical and political drama to The Dreyfus Affair – the false accusation, humiliation, Devil’s Island exile, draconian punishment and eventual exoneration of the French Jewish army officer, Captain Alfred Dreyfus in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
