Why See Nachtland?
familial and ideological differences
In present day Germany, Nicola and Philipp are in a heated dispute as they sift through their late father's belongings. Tensions begin to flare even further when they uncover an aged painting in the attic. The artwork, a charming 1920s Vienna street scene, bears the mark of an artist who forsook his original career to support Nazism. Nicola wants it sold, Philipp doesn't, and Philipp's wife thinks it should be thrown on a fire.
Nachtland is a sharp-witted satire exploring matrimony, preserving legacies, the rise of right-wing ideologies, and the unsettling instincts inside us. Directed for its UK premiere by 2023 Tony Award winner Patrick Marber, this play was penned by Marius von Mayenburg (Fireface, Plastic)
Opening night: 20 February 2024
