The Bitter Tears Of Petra Von Kant

Midtwenties Theatre Society 
Vancouver, Canada 
Playwright: Rainer Werner Fassbinder 

Set in modern Germany, an arrogant, female fashion designer falls in love with a beautiful but cold ingénue who wants to be a model. Themes of narcissism, intimacy, and obsession are explored in beautiful melodramatic fashion in this stage production of one of the most beloved films of New German Cinema auteur, Rainier Werner Fassbinder.

“A fascinating rococo experiment in power.” —Hilton Als, The New Yorker Magazine
“A disturbing story that encourages discussion on gender roles and reflects a lot of our society’s dormant issues.” —Ran Xia, Theatre Is Easy 

The performance on September 8 is half-price!
