Even during the interrogations,  Bonhoeffer was already beginning to create a world of his own in his cell.

He was trying to write a play! He wrote to his parents early on that, after hours of concentrated work on it, he had some difficulty in returning to the reality around him. He must have felt that drama was the appropriate form form in which to express himself, since he was living under dramatic circumstances. But here he was already in difficulty, since he could not write about his own situation, much less about his own hopes for an overthrow of the government. So he set his story in the immediate post-First World War period, and his characters were soldiers returning from the war.

(Ferdinand SchlingensiepenDietrich Bonhoeffer 1906-1945: Martyr, Thinker, Man of Resistance, 340-341).
