Nachtland at the Young Vic

Nachtland at the Young Vic. Friday 12 April, 7.30pm

12 April @ 7:30 pm 10:00 pm

Micro Rainbow is heading out to the theatre! Come along and see the play Nachtland by German director Marius von Mayenburg. 

Here’s what you can expect from the show in the words of the Young Vic Theatre… 

‘Modern day Germany. Nicola and Philipp argue as they clear out their late father’s house. When they find an old painting stashed in the attic, things get savage. 

The painting is a quaint street scene from 1920s Vienna; the work of a failed artist who abandoned his original vocation for Nazism… Nicola wants to sell it. Philipp wants to keep it. Philipp’s wife Judith wants to burn it. 

Nachtland* is a mordant satire about marriage, legacy, the rise of the new right, and the terrible impulses buried deep.’ 

Content warnings: themes of racism, particularly antisemitism; references to the Holocaust; references to the Israel-Palestine conflict; references to the death of a parent; scenes of incest and moments where blood is onstage; strong language, including explicit sexual language.
