Fear and Misery in the Third Reich
Also known as The Private Life of the Master Race, this is a sequence of twenty-four realistic sketches showing how "ordinary" life under the Nazis was subtly permeated by suspicion and anxiety. Written in exile in Denmark and first staged in 1938 it was inspired in part by his recent trip to Moscow where he had been researching tasks for the anti-Nazi effort.

usher: The courtroom's full. And now they're jammed so tight in the corridors that
nobody can get through. And there are some people from the SA there who say
they've got to get through because they've orders to attend. Exit the usher, while
the judge just looks scared. the inspector continuing: Those people are going to
be a bit of a nuisance to you, you know. I'd advise you to concentrate on Arndt
