Paulus Manker, an Austrian film director, actor, author, and screenplay writer, is hoping to bring parts of Karl Kraus’s The Last Days of Mankind to a stage in Wiener-Neustadt between now and 2019 and then to perform the entire play in 2019—on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Austria. The Kurier has published an interview with Manker where he briefly discusses this project. You can read that interview in German here.
While Manker hints that his production of The Last Days of Mankind is still taking shape, the initial public rehearsals are scheduled to take place in August. ——This project will certainly be one worth keeping an eye on. And I will be doing so. Let us wait and see what comes of it.
