Shakespeare stage play shocks Austrians

stage playA certain Shakespeare stage play at the Viennese Burgtheater makes the blood of the Austrians run cold.

The Shakespeare stage play called “Die Rosenkriege” (the Wars of the Roses) causes pure horror in Austria. Now the police and the youth welfare office has imposed an adult only for this kind of stage play.

Theatre experts, police, psychologists and employees of the youth welfare office have seen the affected play, and came to the conclusion that this kind of dramatic art can cause serious damages for teenagers souls and minds.

If the Viennese Burgtheater disregard the youth only, it risks severest punishments. The shocking stage play is staged by Stephan Kimmig in all three parts of “Heinrich VI.” as well as “Richard III.

    I would like to submit “An Under-Baked Viennese Pastry”, my short article dealing with a controversial new American documentary entitled
    “Auf Wiedersehen: ‘Til We Meet Again”. This film is making the rounds of international Jewish film festivals. Like others before her, the director Prof. Linda Mills uses film as a vehicle to search for the truth about her family. Apparently her mother Annie and her Aunt Rita’s incongruous narratives compelled her to explore their life and escape in the late 1930s from Vienna, Austria. I hope you will want to read my challenging review of the movie.
