Weißer Rauch (or ‘White Smoke’) is the premiere of production looking at the history of Pocahontas. Most of us know the Disney-fied version of this story, but did you know that in 1607 the real life-Pocahontas (known also as Matoaka and Amonute) aged around 10, saved the settler John Smith from execution? And that he then went on to establish the first permanent English settlement in America? Sometimes we suspect Disney are not getting the facts straight in those animated documentaries they’re making. If you’d like to know more, go see this fascinating play!
