Location: The Cultch, Culture Lab
Set in modern Germany, THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT is an intimate melodrama about a successful fashion designer who becomes obsessed with a cold- hearted aspiring model. Held up by an all female cast and exploring themes of intergenerational love, sexuality, and sadomaschocism, PETRA VON KANT is the theatrical adaptation of one of the first and best-loved films of New German Cinema auteur Rainier Werner Fassbinder. The play resonates as strongly today as it did at its debut in the 1970s and will force you to reconsider gender roles, romance, and classism. Midtwenties Theatre Society is very proud to present this beautiful masterpiece as part of the Dramatic Works Series for the 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival.
