29 January - 8 February 2014

THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT is a frighteningly evocative theatrical work which tells the intoxicating story of a damaging and emotionally brutal love affair between a fashion designer and her female muse and model.

Fassbinder’s preoccupations with themes of love, mortality, sexuality, power and vanity are all on display in this seminal work from the renowned German film maker and playwright. Startling, brilliant and viciously funny this encounter with Petra is an encounter with Fassbinder himself.
