Tales from Red Vienna

Tony Award winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur, Midnight in Paris) returns to MTC as Helena, a woman who has lost her husband in World War I, and with him, her financial security. Struggling to maintain her way of life, she reluctantly turns to the oldest profession. Helena manages to separate her secret life from her public persona – that is until she crosses paths with a man who has the power to expose and ruin her.

David Grimm's witty and beautifully poetic new work also features Drama Desk Award winner and Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant (Wit, Angels in America). Set as an enormous political tide is turning throughout Europe, TALES FROM RED VIENNA explores the effects of war on women, the circumstances that control their lives and the dreams that set them free.

TALES FROM RED VIENNA is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award.
