Europe’s most talked-about production comes to the OCC and takes it over lock, stock and barrel. The work by the Austrian Nobel laureate Elfriede Jelinek savages the Crisis and capitalism; adapted to fit Greece’s current situation, it is staged as an anarchic music theatre happening with the talented German director, Nicolas Stemann, directing this four-hour orgy of theatre with the requisite manic wisdom.
