16th May KILL JOHNNY GLENDENNING; 29th May THE RATCATCHER
16th MAY FROM 7 PM IN THE MAIN HALL
This play by the popular Scottish author (whose previous work includes My Romantic History) takes place somewhere in the Scottish Highlands where a couple of hapless hoods are awaiting the arrival of their boss. They spoil everything that can be spoiled. Or not? A brilliant black comedy in the style of Martin McDonagh´s plays or Guy Ritchie´s movies and at the same time inspired by the best of old gangster movie traditions.
29th MAY FROM 7 PM IN THE MAIN HALL
One of the greatest works of 20th century is based on an old Saxon legend and still provokes too many questions and interpretations. Is the character of the ratcatcher friend or foe? Viktor Dyk makes his protagonist encounter all types of society. And then makes him confront his own deeds. A fascinating story revealing the depths of strong individualism and orderly being. Looking up to the sky may heal a soul but may also break a neck.
