Background


Blink. Theatre follow their acclaimed inaugural play: The Collector (“A perfectly depraved horror” - Grumpy Gay Critic, “Exquisitely Vulnerable” - The Public Reviews) with this innovative run of Mr Kolpert (David Gieselmann, translation by David Tushingham).


An ethically complex farce, Ralf and Sarah’s all too real prank leads us down a dark and twisted path to challenge the condition of the human imagination and rediscover our empathy. And that’s just for starters …


With writing reminiscent of Hitchcock, Tarantino and Albee, Mr Kolpert is an anarchic black comedy sizzling with surprises.


This is not about Brexit or Merkelisation, but rather just how far we would go to feel real in a disintegrating world.
