Eine Frau - Mary Page Marlowe
More dates will follow soon.
If you were going to tell your life story, which moments would you choose? In eleven scenes, subtly skipping forwards and backwards in time, Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy Letts unfolds a woman’s life in all its deeply eventful normality. Different actors portray the main character in various key situations, outlining hopeful moments and misfortunes, instances of fulfilment and of doubt. They sketch a full life, revealing itself in fragments, like a dear acquaintance’s photo album would open to the eye of a beholder. When can a life be considered a success? Following his world-wide hit of “August: Osage County”, Tracy Letts has written a delicate text about a perfect life with all its imperfections; David Bösch, one of the German theatre’s more sensitive story tellers, is the director.

“A strong cast, a congenial stage design and the a-chronological order of the scenes lend a pull to the production that is hard to escape.”
“But this moving portrait of a woman who has lost herself between the outdated role models of the 1950s and the self-actualisation of the 1980s, and who now wonders who is responsible for what remains at the end of a life – this portrait makes the visit to the theatre absolutely worthwhile.”
