THE PLEBIANS REHEARSE THE UPRISING by Gunter Grass

East 15 Acting School (MA Acting)

David Mercatali

Performances take place at the Cockpit Theatre, Gateforth Street,London, NW8 8EH

Part of the REVOLUTIONS Season

Set in Germany in the 1950s, the Boss – a thin disguise for Bertolt Brecht – rehearses Coriolanus until his rehearsal room is filled with workers seeking a spokesman for the Uprising. Witty and fast moving the brilliance of Grass’ humour combines with the eternal themes of revolution in Shakespeare’s play, resonating no less in 1950s Germany than in Egypt, Tunisia or Syria today.
