Event description

Description

Playwright: Frédéric Sonntag

Translator: Samuel Buggeln

Director: Warner Crocker

Partner: TBD

Synopsis: George Kaplan the character is the fictional spy in Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, and George Kaplan the play is at once an anarchic comedy, a spy thriller, and a dizzying exploration into the relationship between reality and fiction. A hall-of-mirrors journey through conspiracy theories, the quality of coffee, and the nature of identity itself, the play forces an uneasy reckoning with the ways in which media narratives drive our politics and shape our understanding of the world. George Kaplan was first produced in Copenhagen in 2013 and since then become an international phenomenon translated into a dozen languages, receiving countless readings and fifteen full productions throughout Europe and North and Latin America.
