the unmarried woman

Country - Austria

Playwright - Ewald Palmetshofer

Translator - Neil Blackadder

Collaborators - TUTA Theatre

Director - Andy Hager

Synopsis -

Three women, three generations, an unresolved past that stinks of betrayal and blind obedience: the unmarried woman connects April 1945 with the present. The woman is old and has an alienated daughter and a grand-daughter whom she feels closer to, even though the young woman is digging through her past. A female chorus of four completes the ensemble through which Palmetshofer uncovers who might have done what, and why.
