Leonce and Lena at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre
Kuentos Theatre presents Leonce and Lena, by Georg Buchner, in a new adaptation by Corinna Duemler, at the Jack Studio Theatre in Brockley, south London, from 18 to 29 August 2015.
The production, which is described as a "dark comedy that is filled with a host of characters consumed with ideals of love, power and adventure," will be directed by Roberta Zuric.
Synopsis: "Leonce is the prince of the Kingdom of Popo. Lena is the princess of Pipi. To escape an arranged marriage, both decide to run away. But in the woods between the two kingdoms, nothing is quite what it seems. The more the runaways try to escape their fate, the more they find themselves right back in its grip."
Writer Georg Buchner's (1813-1837) work also includes "Danton’s Death" and "Woyzeck".
