  • ‘Key for Two’ in the Vienna’s English Theatre

    Hi all,

    Last Thursday we watched another very funny play in the Vienna’s English Theatre: Key for Two by John Chapman and Dave Freedman.

    The play is about a woman who is juggling with two lovers, which goes quite well until an old friend appears and the two lovers, unfortunately for Harriet, the woman with the two lovers, also arrive nearly at the same time. The play is hilariously funny and – some time after the beginning, which is rather boring but needed to introduce the actors – attracts a lot of laughter from the audience.

  • ‘Black Tie’ by A.R. Gurney in Vienna’s English Theatre

    And now for something completely different (I warned you, this blog really covers a lot of topics)…

    On Saturday, my wife and I went to Vienna to watch a play in Vienna’s English Theatre: ‘Black Tie’ by A.R. Gurney. A very amusing piece about the changes of dresscode (but not only dresscode) in today’s US during the time, offered by 3 generations. First, there is the main character, Curtis, who is about to write a speech for his son’s rehearsal dinner (or, as his father might want to put it, the bridal dinner). He is the one most torn apart between good old manners and modern lifestyle. During the play, his late father arrives as a ghost to support him with the task, however, as his father has rather old-fashioned manners, this leads to quite some trouble, especially with Curtis’ daughter, who is helping his wife to organize the dinner.

    This play leads to a lot of laughter, so if you are near, it definitely is worth spending some money and have a very relaxing evening.
