Director Christopher Rüping has adapted the novel to evoke today’s demagoguery on both sides of the pond, mixing Trumpian riffs with references to European calls for guaranteed basic income. Felix Goeser fuels the production’s strong start with his front-facing, charismatic performance as a campaigning Windrip, but the energy subsides in scenes hewing closer to the novel’s plot in which Windrip’s Secretary of State seizes power only to be overthrown himself in a military putsch.
