Golden Dragon, The

Translated by David Tushingham

Roland Schimmelpfennig
 
Number 6: Thai soup with chicken, coconut milk, Thai ginger, tomatoes, button mushrooms, lemon grass and lemon leaves (hot).

On a typical evening, anywhere in Europe, you walk into your local Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant, and the whole world is there. Everyone connected to everyone else, through this one place…

The Golden Dragon is a funny and theatrical fable of modern life and migration, whisking you from your local takeaway to East Asia and back, revealing what really goes into that bowl of spicy soup. Are you hungry yet?

Review
'The play works by restraint – weaving its spell slowly but surely, with a spider’s web delicacy… There are strong elements of folk tale to this story of exploitation in a globalised economy. Schimmelpfennig uncovers the nasty things that get shoved out of the sight of well-fed Westerners.'  Metro

Push Up

Roland Schimmelpfennig/Maja Zade
 
A savage satire on the rapacious nature of office lives and lusts - the British debut from a writer whose work has been seen in prestigious theatres all over Germany.

Everyone wants to get to the executive suite. Everyone wants the Delhi job. Everyone wants sex, everyone wants love. So, they push for it.

Review
'An attack on corporate life enacted in a sequence of cunning dialogues... formally elegant and crisply expressed.'   Observer

Roland Schimmelpfennig Plays One

Translated by David Tushingham

Roland Schimmelpfennig
 

Roland Schimmelpfennig is the most performed contemporary German playwright. This collection demonstrates the breadth and formal innovation of his writing.  This collection features:

The Animal Kingdom, depicts the unremitting battle for human survival in a merciless environment: the theatre.

Peggy Pickit Sees the Face of God has been likened to a post-colonial Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Here two doctors who have returned from Africa reveal the true cost of their failure to combat a terrible and frightening disease.

Idomeneusis a narrative play written for a large chorus which re-tells the classical Idomeneus myth in contemporary terms; a fractured, mythic tidal wave, brought to life with astounding theatricality by an ensemble of storytellers.

A small narrative piece, The Four Points of the Compassis is an urban fable of crossed destinies and uncanny coincidences and a compelling contemporary tale of lust for life and the fragility of existence.

Winter Solstice

Roland Schimmelpfennig
 

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.
