BEAT THE DEVIL by David Hare
"On the same day that the UK government finally made the first of two decisive interventions that led to a conspicuously late lockdown, David Hare (the playwright) contracted Covid-19. Nobody seemed to know much about it then, and many doctors are not altogether sure they know much more today. Suffering a pageant of apparently random symptoms, Hare recalls the delirium of his illness, which mixed with fear, dream, honest medicine and dishonest politics create a monologue of furious urgency and power."
Performed by Tom Zahner | directed by Ilya Parenteau
As BEAT THE DEVIL is part of the Theatermuseum's exhibition "Erinnerungsgeister und Hoffnungslichter" (Memory ghosts and lights of hope) you will be invited to attend a 25-minute guided tour of the exhibition directly after the performance. This will be included in the ticket price!
