To kick off the theater evening at 8:15 pm, Kristina Sprenger’s debut as artistic director at the Stadttheater Berndorf will show: Miguel Mihura’s comedy “Katzenzungen”, directed by Alexander Kuchinka. The eternal bachelor Vinzenz von Leschanz (Hubert Wolf), a shy cat’s tongue manufacturer, meets the bright Stupsi (Kristina Sprenger) in Vienna. In his blind enthusiasm, he does not notice that he is introducing his mother (Sophia Grabner) and aunt (Lotte Ledl) to a prostitute as his future wife.
“We play for Austria” leads to the “dark, luring world” from Werk X at 10:15 pm. In the crime play by the Tyrolean playwright Händl Klaus, the young doctor Corinna (Constanze Passin) moves out of her home. When the apartment is handed over, her landlord Joachim (Wojo van Brouwer) engages her in a conversation until his eye falls on a strange object: a tiny human toe lying in the corner. The play, which was awarded the Nestroy Theater Prize in the category “Best Off-Production” in 2020, was staged by Nurkan Erpulat.
