Howard Barker's THE EUROPEANS
Help me or I think we'll die alone...
Vienna. 1683. The combined Polish and Viennese armies have beaten back the Turkish force. In the aftermath of the siege, the city's survivors begin to build their society anew. The Emperor and Empress would like order restored, and the poor just want to survive, but Starhemberg, the general responsible for the salvation of the city, and Katrin, a wounded citizen, seek to forge a new world out of the ashes of the old.
A harrowing love story, and an exploration of our personal freedoms and choices inside the maddening political structures that control our lives.
"British playwright Howard Barker isn't a young man, but he is an angry one. He doesn't countenance niceties, and he actively discourages politesse. Whatever lies we tell ourselves in order to live in civil society, Barker reveals and reviles them." - The Village Voice
