A kind of brother


4th of September – 8th of September 2019


First evening of the Val Pusteria Theatre Society

A kind of brother of Burkhard Wetekam's is a current and moving piece on an explosive medical subject: stem cell manipulation and bone marrow transplantation.


About the content: 35 years ago Paul was born as one of the first "test tube babies" after the fertilized egg of Paul's mother was placed in a surrogate mother. The goal: to cure his terminally ill brother Erik by giving him bone marrow. Now Paolo, now a failed existence, has one goal: to claim half of his fortune from rich Erik. After all, without being asked, he made Erik's financial rise possible. Things get complicated when Erik's wife Anna also comes into play, especially since she only gradually learns about Erik's background.

"Today we are acquiring the incredible possibilities of medicine with a growing claim to power over the biological substance we still call nature. What stories will the children of the future have to tell? The play tries to put together an ancient narrative model and a question of today's world," the author says about his work.

Directed by Alfred Meschnigg, the play is starring Claudia Antenhofer (Oberwielenbach), Sonja Ellemut (Bruneck), Angelika Plank (Sand in Taufers), Rudolf Beikircher (Oberrrasen) and Peppe Mairginter (San Candido). In addition, the PTG brought reinforcements from East Tyrol with Wolfgang Michor from Dölsach (Jesus' actor in the "Passion" 2017 in Aguntum).

For this production, director Alfred Meschnigg once again relies on the proven concept of the studio stage, which offers the audience the best listening and viewing conditions and creates an incredibly dense theatrical atmosphere.
