After the success of Greyhounds and Flowers in the Desert, we’ve already begun planning our next production, Do You Want to Know a Secret?, a searing family drama set in Berlin during the waning years of the Cold War. This will be a large scale production so Actors Rep is joining with Mierscher Kulturhaus for the European premiere of this award winning play.
Written by Daniel Pinkerton, Do You Want to Know a Secret? tells the story of the members of the Berger family who are caught in the politics, fear and paranoia of a society in which everyone just may be spying on everyone else. Who can be trusted in an environment of seemingly universal betrayal? Walter Berger passionately loves his wife, Karin, and their daughter, Erika, and wants to get on with their lives. Karin wants to change the world – starting with the German Democratic Republic.
Politics, family, love, betrayal, fear and paranoia collide in this important drama inspired by real-life events. A quarter of a century after the Wall came down, this taut and moving drama about one family’s struggles with betrayal resonates profoundly with our own era of Edward Snowden and identity theft.
Erik Abbott will direct and the cast will feature Timothy Lone, Rhona Richards and Christine Probst.
Do You Want to Know a Secret? will run at Mierscher Kulturhaus from 9th – 13th March 2016 (all performances at 8pm with an additional performance at 5pm on Sunday 13th March) Tickets are available now by telephoning (+352) 47 08 95 1 or at www.luxembourgticket.lu
