A Little Calm Before the Storm

December 05 2017

Playwright: Theresia Walser

In ancient days, the actor playing the character of Satan was usually killed at the end of the show!
Or so we learn when studying theatre history. But, these are modern days and killing actors is (un) fortunately not permitted. Which brings us to the matter at hand. Three actors preparing for a panel discussion about playing Hitler. Since the moderator is late they get talking. Two have played Hitler on stage, while the third has been Goebbels in a film. Slowly, with perfidious wordplay and black humour, a clash of cultures emerges between the old and the new. Theatre thus orbits itself – and laughs.
