Leonce and Lena

16 January - 11 February 2007

by Georg Buchner

This is a modern fairy tale, a true style romantic comedy saluting Goethe and Shakespeare, the dark undertones of which dissect a socially inert society. Romanticism dawning as an escape from the absurdities of absolutist government in 1830. Buchner satirises the ennui of his generation. Familiar themes such as the quest for true love will transport you in a warm, enchanting, magical hour in an hour away from the grey English winter.
