Mr Kolpert

By David Gieselmann Translated by David Tushingham

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A delightfully morbid black comedy with a nod to Hitchcock's Rope.

Ralf and Sarah are bored. They decide to invite a couple of friends round for drinks and pizza. To spice things up Ralf pretends there's a dead body in their trunk – the dead body of one of their work colleagues. While they are waiting for the pizza, they play party games and discuss films, but nothing can cover up the tense atmosphere between the two couples. And maybe Ralf is not pretending after all...

David Gieselmann's play Mr Kolpert, in this English translation by David Tushingham, was premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2000, in a production directed by Richard Wilson.
