Actors Touring Company & Orange Tree Theatre

Winter Solstice

Written by Roland Schimmelpfennig Translated by David Tushingham

Bettina and her husband Albert aren’t happy – Bettina’s mother is staying for the holidays. Which is awkward.

Not least because Bettina’s mother met a man on the train. And now she’s invited him around for drinks…

Family, betrayal and the inescapable presence of the past reverberate through the UK regional premiere of Roland Schimmelpfennig’s razor-sharp comedy about the rise
of the new right across the globe.

Schimmelpfennig is the most performed playwright in Germany, with productions of his work worldwide in over 40 countries. Previous productions in the UK include The Golden Dragon and Arabian Night, both presented by Actors Touring Company.
