“PRETTY DEAD” by Fred Apke, translated by Chris Trengove
My translation of German writer/director Fred Apke’s play “Das Huhn Auf Dem Rucken” is now available for UK production. Successfully produced in Warsaw, Salzburg and most recently Hamburg, this (mostly) two-hander has garnered rave reviews: “A brilliantly written comedy… in which a psychological and a criminal plot are intertwined.” (Rzeczpospolita – Warsaw) “… witty dialogue and profound psychological knowledge…” (Wyborcza Katowice)”… garnished with pitch-black humour and situation comedy. (Hamburger Abendblatt.) Re-titled “Pretty Dead,” the English version brings to mind Mike Leigh with a dash of Pinter, its small cast and single set making it ideal for repertory and fringe productions.
