"Mitterer's plays confront human suffering and oppression with an honesty and directness that is often painful for theater audiences. Siberia is a metaphor for survival under the most adverse conditions. This moving monologue represents one old man's struggle for dignity in a retirement home. .....The Austrian playwright Felix Mitterer, born in 1948 in the Tyrol, is one of today's leading contemporary European dramatists."
I'm leaving for Austria this morning, staying here for a week's skiing with the New Ninja Bomber and 25 other friends, so I bunburied along to the Colour House Theatre last night for two hours cheery Austrian drama to get myself in the mood.
Posting to the blog may be light for the next week.
