“Having previously directed Ungeduld des Herzens (Beware of Pity) at the Schaubühne, Simon McBurney is now dramatising Kleist’s novella about a man prepared to go to extremes to secure justice. The production explores whether it is perhaps sometimes right to break the law to achieve this end and which forms of resistance can be appropriate and effective”
