Faith, Hope and Charity

  • 22 Jun 2011 — 16 Jul 2011

Written by Ödön von Horvath, translated by Christopher Hampton

Elisabeth aims to keep afloat as the Depression hits. When she is fined for selling lingerie without a valid permit, she tries to settle her debts by offering her body for medical research after her death. A charitable soul takes pity on Elisabeth, but soon she finds herself back in custody. Exposing a system in which Faith, Hope and Charity have become hard currency, this UK revival of Ödön von Horvath’s play asks enduring questions about society, civil rights and the welfare state.
