Request Programme – Wunschkonzert

Schauspiel Koln & Berlin Theatre Festival


An iconic play by Franz Xaver Kroetz

This production, mounted in late 2008 in Cologne, was jury-selected as “one of the ten best German-language productions of 2008”, and consequently appeared as part of the Berlin Theatre Festival programme in May 2009.

Following previous collaborations with director Katie Mitchell at the National Theatre (London) creating hybrid film/theatre adaptations including Waves (2006), Attempts on Her Life (2007) and …Some Trace of Her (2008), DoP and video designer Leo Warner (59 Productions) visited Cologne in November 2008 to create a new production of this iconic play by German writer Franz Xaver Kroetz.
