The Stone
Marius von Mayenburg
Golden Mask Award Nominee, Golden Soffit Award Nominee. Due to bold time leaps and contradictory images, the play by Marius von Mayenburg shows us prominent conflicts of the latest German history.

This is the story of one family on the Theatre’s chamber stage shown during a long period of changing eras, it is a time travel from 1934 to the 1990s.

The play of the German playwright Marius von Mayenburg bases on time travel and conflicting images and shows the contradictions in the German history of the XX century. The play begins in 1934, when one Jewish family sells their house in Dresden. Over the next few decades, more and more new people will come to the house, though the mother and daughter, who once bought this house in very suspicious circumstances, remain the central characters.

The interweaving of human destinies happens at the fixed space - in the same room of the same house. It is exactly the place where a family legend was born, which the heroes are forced to support and which eventually ruins to dust. Spectators gradually discover the past and future of the characters and the moments when their lies are born, which in the early 1990s are considered an undoubted truth.


The performance is a Russian Theatre Golden Mask Award Nominee and Saint Petersburg Theatre Golden Soffit Award Nominee.
