EFFI BRIEST - A live audiobook thriller

Paul Sonderegger

Effi Briest on Usedom
A live audiobook thriller

A really tricky story: young Effi is unhappy. Her husband frightens her with ghost stories and often leaves her alone. Fortunately, there is the attractive Major Crampas. A torrid affair begins with him. But her guilty conscience leaves her no peace, for years. Then the affair blows up - with fatal consequences...
Effi Briest experienced her love adventures on the Island of Usedom! Theodor Fontane himself spent his childhood in Świnoujście, and it was here that the poet set "Effi Briest", his most famous novel, in places whose traces can still be found today: in the Polish town of Świnoujście, but Lake Gothensee in Heringsdorf and Lake Schloon in Bansin also play a fateful role.
Actor and director Paul Sonderegger is a passionate reader. He reads "with such presence and intensity that the audience literally hangs on his every word and enjoys it: subtle irony, political explosiveness, passionate love", writes the press. He has already staged "Snow White and Rose Red", "The Robber Hotzenplotz and the Moon Rocket" and "Rico, Oskar and the Thief Stone" at the Vorpommersche Landesbühne. Now he is bringing the most exciting passages from Theodor Fontane's novel "Effi Briest" to the stage - an audiobook thriller to share in the excitement.
The performance is accompanied by images and videos from Fontane's world then and now. A multimedia encounter with the Island of Usedom in the past and present.
