THE LAST DAYS OF MANKIND

One hundred years after the Armistice, Leith Theatre presents a contemporary satirical account of World War One, written in the cafes of Vienna by Karl Kraus.

With original songs from The Tiger Lillies and a cast drawn from Scotland, Ireland, Poland, Germany, France, Ukraine and Serbia this is true European theatre.

“Mark Holthusen’s projections filling the whole wall surrounding the proscenium arch and not flinching from using photographs of death, hanging and starvation as Jacques delivers his ironic and devastatingly bitter new songs with an insouciant sneer from the piano.”

“This is done through a series of stunning images to illustrate the text, just as the mix of archive footage and constructivist collages that form designer Mark Holthusen’s equally striking backdrops.”
