The Story

When Holly Martins shows up at Harry Lime's invitation in post-World War II Vienna, he finds out that Harry has passed away in an automobile accident. But nothing that is revealed to him about what occurred makes sense. As Holly delves into the world of black market traders and military bureaucracy, the suspense grows, and it all comes to a head in a chase through the Vienna sewers as Holly tries to find out what happened to Harry. But the third man, who is he really? To watch this musical thriller, book your The Third Man tickets today to catch the show at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
