Tales from the Vienna woods by Ödön von Horváth

PIREOS 260 – Η BUILDING

From 23.10.2008 to 07.12.2008

The young Marianne is determined to stand up to the foolishness of the world around her.In an attempt to escape from the quagmire of everyday life, she breaks off the engagement that her father has arranged for her and risks everything to be with a charming gambler who makes his living at the racetrack.But he is the wrong horse to back, and after a difficult journey and many misadventures, leaves her exhausted and once again in the arms of her former fiancé.Whatever she stubbornly and heroically attempted to avoid becomes her final fate, while all around her, foolishness continues its triumphant rule.

 


“Nothing conveys the feeling of infinity as much as stupidity”:Horvath’s epigram in “Tales from the Vienna Woods” sums up this bittersweet story set in the Vienna of 1931, which examines the tragicomedy of human fate and foresees the nightmare of Nazism.This summer’s successful joint production with the Athens Festival returns to Building Η at Pireos 260 for a limited number of performances.The Artistic Director of the National Theatre, Yannis Houvardas, directs a production with live music and a stellar cast.
