|Georg Kaiser: From Morning to Midnight|
in a new version by Dennis Kelly
Directed by Melly Still
Knocked for six by his lust for an exotically perfumed woman from Florence, a trusted bank clerk shoves a stolen fortune in his pocket and runs to her hotel, where his ludicrous advances are rejected.
But, he’s broken free and there’s no turning back. He ditches his family to embark on a roller-coaster odyssey, scouring the city’s senseless entertainments in an increasingly disillusioned search for an experience worth buying and a reason for living.
Georg Kaiser’s masterpiece From Morning to Midnight, in a new version by Dennis Kelly, explores the tragedy of an ordinary man who steps outside his humdrum life and, over the course of one crazy, alienating day, destroys himself.
