Since the theatres must remain closed, the English-language play "An English Angst" is now celebrating its online premiere. The political comedy-drama is set in Frankfurt and deals with the consequences of Brexit for Britons living in Europe.
June 2016: Charlotte, a British woman living in Frankfurt, has been the owner of a pan-European radio station for ten years. The joy of the anniversary is marred by falling listener numbers and concerns about the upcoming Brexit referendum. The funders in Brussels want a turnaround and threaten to cut off the juice to "TransEURadio". The British management consultant Tina Philips is supposed to get the radio station back on the road to success. Charlotte finds it difficult to accept outside help - especially since an earlier encounter between the two did not go well.
The play was produced and directed by Anna Rogers and Tracey Grey. "It was pretty clear to us back in the winter that the theatres weren't going to reopen any time soon, so we went for a virtual production from the start," Tracey Grey explains. "But next year we definitely want to be live on stage," Anna Rogers hopes, "first in Frankfurt and then in several other venues in Europe."
"An English Angst" is the fifth play by Anna Rogers. The author from Frankfurt also plays Tina, a management consultant, and Tracey Grey plays Charlotte. Camillo Guthmann, who has just been accepted at the Folkwang Schauspielschule in Essen, plays the young editor Mel.
