Coming soon: An Actor’s Titanic and other Nightmares (by Christopher Durang)

The Provisional Players present, as a special Christmas treat, an evening of fast-paced, outrageous and sometimes absurd comedy pieces by this year’s Tony award winner for best play – Christopher Durang.

Have a Business Lunch in the Russian Tea Room, fight bureaucracy personified by the DMV Tyrant, and find out whether to keen in a Funeral Parlor. And if it really sounds like Eeeeeeck! Awoooooga!

Join the Tamurai familiy with its dark secrets about incest, infidelity, mirrors, a surprising amount of white bread and hamsters in unexpected places. All on a Titanic that obstinately refuses to sink. Have a quick rest with Naomi in the living room, before accompanying George into every Actor’s Nightmare – being in a play you don’t remember rehearsing, that keeps changing all the time, and that makes you wonder if you are an actor after all …

Come and join the show in the week before Christmas: 16th – 20th of December 2013, 8pm, in the Brechtbau Theatre.



Coming soon: Around the World in 80 Days

The Provisional Players present the spectacle of our generation!

Around the World in 80 Days

Around the World in 80 Days

Follow Phileas Fogg on his race around the world, through exotic locations, across  oceans and deserts,  attacked by Indians, hounded by detectives for robbing the Bank of England, rescuing maidens from horrible fates and preventing a nosy journalist from discovering his most valued secret,  while the clock keeps ticking and obstacles pile upon obstacles.

Get the whole story – does it really make sense to travel around the world in a balloon, at  which point did Phileas Fogg decide to go to the moon, and what is Captain Nemo doing in all of this?

This and a lot more in the Provisonal Players’ take on Jules Verne’s beloved classics  (yes, plural!), only in the Brechtbau Theatre.

Where: Brechtbau Theatre, Wilhelmstrasse 50, Tuebingen
When: Mon – Fri, 8-12/07/2013, 8pm

Tickets: 5 Euros at the door or at

sincere play …
