Tony Award-winner Patrick Marber directs the UK premiere of this satire about the rise of the new right.
In modern-day Germany, siblings Nicola and Philipp bicker as they clear out their late father’s house. When they find an old painting in the attic, tempers really start to flare.
The painting is of a quaint street in 1920s Vienna, by an 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' (a made-up German word evoking a place of eternal darkness) is a sharp satire about marriage, legacy, and hidden impulses.
2023 Tony Award-winner Patrick Marber ('Leopoldstadt') directs this production.
