"George Kaplan" is a three-act play with numerous narrative lines. This is a play about the political importance of myths and narratives, about Hollywood’s influence on our perception of world geopolitics, about Alfred Hitchcock’s involvement in an international plot, about a hen that can save the humankind and about a name that can change the world. Frederic Sonntag plays with conspiracy theories in his original intriguing and inventive way. George Kaplan is an intellectual entertainment that invites us to think about the way the modern world is arranged. During and after the play the spectator asks themselves: What is truth? Who is manipulating us and for what purpose? Who or what is George Kaplan actually?
In 2016 "George Kaplan" won EURODRAM selection for francophone text. The play has been translated in fifteen languages and is performed in a dozen countries.
"George Kaplan" is produced in partnership with: French Institute Bulgaria / with the support of: Bulgarian Ministry of Culture and Goethe-Institut Bulgaria
