About History of Violence

This November, director Thomas Ostermeier and Schaubühne Berlin return to St. Ann’s Warehouse with Édouard Louis’ stunning autobiographical memoir History of Violence. Through the fractured recall of Édouard, his sister, police, and doctors, the “brave and ambitious” (The Guardian) book and play reconstruct the trauma of a desire-filled encounter turned violent. A layered retelling that is both devastating and funny, the production uncovers deeply rooted societal racism, homophobia, and rage unbridled under obscure, repressive power structures until all that remains is a nuanced, closely guarded memory.

Performed in German with English Supertitles.
