About the Show Less...

Dark comic play which examines two of the cornerstones of modern society - family and religion. Read More >

Holy Mothers rips apart the values behind two of the cornerstones of modern society: family and religion. Playwright Werner Schwab transports ud to Erna’s kitchen where, together with Grete and Mariedl, these world-weary, abused creatures attempt to transcend the banalities of their daily existance by conjuring an emotionally charged, bacchanalian fantasy world. Heated discussions about liver sausage, excretment and the Pope, lead to blood being spilt – but who lives and who dies?
