UK Premiere - a Contemporary Stage Company production
The elderly Mister Paul, content in his decaying surroundings, is
threatened when Helm, an impetuous young man, arrives with
plans to develop the property. His attempts however are thwarted
by Paul's refusal to move, making for some wry humour and
culminating in a disturbingly macabre climax. The play with its
colourful characters is an intriguing blend of naturalism and fantasy
- a gripping masterpiece by this award-winning German dramatist.
The play was voted Play of the Year and won the Goethe-Institut
Award in 1994.
Tickets: £10 (£8 concessions).
