Her new performance, Marlene is a refreshing and thought-provoking fusion of music and dance, words and images, burlesque and circus routines.

"Marlene is funny, it’s sad, it’s shocking, it’s honest, it’s outrageous, but above all, relatable. It’s an unforgiving hour that I wouldn’t have missed for the world.”
Funzine.hu

"The play itself is well-directed and the script is well-written. The music matches the happenings on the stage perfectly. Still I believe Éva Magyar’s acting is immaculate and wonderful and that is what makes the whole play brilliant."

Two premieres in mid-February

On our main stage Tamás Ascher directs a version of Gorky's Children of the Sun. Titled Light-eaters and set in in the last decades of the 20. century, the play centred around a group of people, who believe all they need is light to survive. Representing the intellectual class, they aim to make the world better, help fellow people in the need - yet, they may struggle to understand or even see others. Premiere date: 15 February.

Our other new show, staged in Kamra, Where even the wolf is good is a mix of a crime story and a surrealistic  tale set in 1950's communist Hungary, based on actual events.

Between October 1953 and August 1954 five teenage girls disappeared in a small town. The playgrounds turned empty, children were not let go to school alone, some people suspected the Jews, others suspected CIA agents of kidnapping the girls.

Some time later the twenty-year old Piroska Jancsó fell under suspicion. She first said that the girls were raped and murdered by the local soldiers of the Soviet Army, then she confessed to have committed the erotogenic murders alone, moreover, accused her mother of complicity. She was sentenced to death.

Twelve years later Szilárd Rubin fell in love with the dead girl after seeing a photo of her. He suspected of a false accusation behind the judgement and started to investigate. He worked on his novel "Holy Innocents", which speaks about Piroska, for more than forty years. It was published in 2012, after the author's death. Péter Gothár's direction tries to re-enact the investigation, the trial and Rubin's impossible love for Piroska. Where even the wolf is good debuts in 14 February.
