The Ride Across Lake Constance

A play by Peter Handke

Originally scheduled for March 27, 2020, postponed to September 2021

The highly experimental play by the great contemporary German playwright Peter Handke, awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize for Literature, presents a group of aristocrats who inhabit a semi-deserted mansion and begin to improvise scenarios, ranging from ominous to silly, about the meaning of life. The production will feature Nepali film and stage luminaries appropriate for a play modeled on leading German actors of the time, featuring Rajkumar Pudasaini and Aashant Sharma, a great comic duo reminiscent of the bums in Waiting for Godot; the beauteous model Srijana Regmi and French ballerina Alize Biannic; and the always impressive Shulakchhyan Bharati.
