Role Overview


About the Role

Play at the Almeida Theatre, written by Ödön von Horváth, and adapted by Christopher Hampton.

Diligent railway station master Thomas Hudetz is a well respected member of his local community. That is until the charms of flirtatious young Anna distract him momentarily from the operation of the signals. There are no survivors from Express Train 405. The small town seeks a culprit but it seems only Anna knows the truth about the conscientious station master. Written during the rise of Fascism, the question of moral responsibility lies at the heart of Judgment Day.

Joseph's role



And Joseph Millson's perfomance, as the stationmaster Thomas Hudetz, is phenomenal. There is a touch of the automaton about him, as if doing a job reliant on clockwork had affected his own inner workings. It is painful to behold his stressed, placatory smile. Something fundamental is wrong – even before he goes completely off the rails. The Guardian
