Winter Solstice (Wintersonnenwende) by Roland Schimmelpfennig
Orange Tree Theatre, 1 Clarence Street, Richmond
Play, translated by David Tushingham Christmas Eve. Bettina and her husband Albert aren’t happy. Bettina’s mother is staying for the holidays. Which is awkward. Not least because Bettina’s mother met a man on the train. And now she’s invited him around for drinks... Family, betrayal and the inescapable presence of the past reverberate through the UK premiere of Roland Schimmelpfennig’s razor-sharp comedy. Schimmelpfennig is the most performed playwright in Germany and one of the country’s most exciting original voices, with productions of his work worldwide in over 40 countries. “ATC produces work that inspires me to reconsider what a play can be and what theatre can do. Magical.” Simon Stephens Runs until 11 February 2017. Tuesday 7 February: post-show Meet the Cast event. Click here to book tickets. An Orange Tree Theatre and Actors Touring Company co-production. Translation funded by the Goethe-Institut London.
