MR KOLPERT

2012 

The King's Head

BY DAVID GIESELMANN

TRANSLATED BY DAVID TUSHINGHAM


Directed by RACHEL VALENTINE SMITH

  

“All we wanted to do was feel something again. Feel human. Then we had the idea of murdering someone.”

Life is going right over Ralph & Sarah’s heads. They decide to invite a couple of friends round for a few drinks and a pizza in order to relieve their boredom.

To get the party started Ralph jokes that the conspicuous trunk in the middle of their lounge contains a dead body- the dead body of their work colleague Mr Kolpert. Are they heartless jokers or ruthless killers?

With echoes of Alan Aykbourne and Taranitino Mr Kolpert was first performed in the UK at The Royal Court in 2000 this relevant, exciting and at times violent play is ripe for a revival by theatre collective The Curious Room.
