St. Ann’s Warehouse presents the Schaubühne Berlin production of History of Violence, November 13 – December 1, 2019.

The German Consulate General Co-Presents:

Director Thomas Ostermeier and Schaubühne Berlin return to St. Ann’s Warehouse with Édouard Louis’ searing autobiographical novel. Through the fractured recall of Édouard, his sister, police, and doctors, the “brave and ambitious” (The Guardian) History of Violence reconstructs the trauma of a desire-filled encounter turned violent. A layered retelling that is both devastating and funny, the production uncovers deeply rooted societal racism, homophobia, and rage unbridled, until all that remains is a nuanced, closely guarded memory.
