by Ferdinand Bruckner, new version by Martin Crimp

The NY Premiere of Crimp's translation of Bruckner's 1926 masterpiece           Production Website

The Cake Shop | Feb-Mar 2014 | Access Theater Gallery, TriBeCa

"A radical time. A restless generation. Manipulation and sexuality rule. Vienna in 1923 is a heady world no one expected to inherit, where spirits run high but buzzes die quickly. Promiscuous, pitiless and bored, six medical students savagely experiment on life—and each other. Following a critically acclaimed engagement at the National Theatre in London, Martin Crimp’s new translation of Ferdinand Bruckner’s Pains of Youth makes its New York Premiere. Slip away to this contemporary TriBeCa loft for an erotically charged evening of humor and pain."

"Compelling, frightening, and fascinating... Featuring strong performances of mercurial whims, dramatic musings, and sadistic power games... So highly reflective of today it's hard to believe [this work] was penned in 1926." - Adrienne Urbanksi, Theatre is Easy
