Copenhagen Theatre Circle (CTC) præsenterer på engelsk

Funeral Games
En sort komedie af Joe Orton

Instrueret af Maria Lundbye
Medvirkende: Dominic Achaz, Damian Kowalczyk, Adriano Mandolini, Irina Norberg


Copenhagen Theatre Circle er stolt over at præsentere Joe Ortons sorte komedie Funeral Games.

Da den religiøse bedrager og kult leder Pringle modtager et anonymt brev, hvori det hævdes, at hans kone Tessa har en affære med en tidligere katolsk præst, hyrer han en bølle til at undersøge sagen.

Selv om det ser ud til, at Tessas besøg hos præsten McCorquodale ikke drejer sig om andet end et sengebad, mener Pringle, at han har ret til at slå hende ihjel for utroskab. Men Pringle overtales til at fortælle folk, at Tessa er forsvundet i håb om, at han vil få ry for at være en trendy morder. Det går imidlertid galt for ham, da en journalist begynder at kræve bevis for mordet og anklager Pringle for at være uskyldig.

Selvom Funeral Games første gang blev udsendt af Yorkshire Television tilbage i 1968 og opført som skuespil i 1970, er stykkets humoristiske syn på organiseret religion og fanatisme - og hvordan folk drages af det - lige så relevant i dag, hvis ikke endnu mere. Joe Ortons karriere kun varede tre år indtil hans død i 1967, men den var meget produktiv. Adjektivet Ortonesque bruges sommetider, når der refereres til andre lignende skandaløse sorte komedier.

Stykket indeholder originalmusik, en ligdel og en del sexreferancer, så kom og vær med til et chok og et grin - værs'go', det er en udfordring!

Copenhagen Theatre Circle (CTC) presents in English

Funeral Games
A black comedy by Joe Orton

Directed by Maria Lundbye
Cast: Dominic Achaz, Damian Kowalczyk, Adriano Mandolini, Irina Norberg

Ticket price kr. 110. Group discounts available for groups of 10 or more.


Please note that the performance will last approximately one hour and there will not be an interval.

Copenhagen Theatre Circle is proud to present Joe Orton's black comedy Funeral Games.

When religious conman and cult leader Pringle receives an anonymous letter alleging his wife Tessa is having an affair with a former Catholic priest, he hires young thug Caulfield to investigate.

Although it appears Tessa's visits to the priest McCorquodale involve nothing more compromising than a blanket bath, Pringle believes it's his right to kill her for committing adultery. But Pringle is persuaded to tell people Tessa has gone away, in the hope suspicions will be raised and he will develop a trendy reputation as a killer. But things go awry when a news reporter begins demanding proof of the murder and accuses Pringle of being innocent …
Although Funeral Games was first presented by Yorkshire Television back in 1968 and produced as a stage play in 1970, its humorous take on organized religion and fanaticism - and how people are drawn into it - is just as relevant today, if not even more so. Joe Orton's career lasted only three years until his death in 1967 but was very productive. The adjective Ortonesque is sometimes used in referring to other similarly scandalous black comedies.

The play features original music, a body part and a sexual reference or two, so you are invited to join us for a shock and a giggle - go on, we dare you!
