Republik Vineta

(The Vineta Republic)
4F / 7M

Five leading managers have withdrawn for a secret planning summit. In a remote villa, they work on their project “Vineta,” a new city, and on a “theme park of lost dreams,” both to be constructed on an uninhabited island. They come across unbreachable ideological differences, and an unrestrained power struggle breaks out, going as far as planned murder. This, however, is just the beginning of a whole chain of tragicomic developments. “Since Dürrenmatt, no one has grasped farce as truth and truth as farce quite like Rinke has – and understood theatre as a medium in which illusion and its revocation constantly determine each other.” (Frankfurter Rundschau)

The play has been translated into:
English: The Vineta Republic; Hungarian: Vineta Köztársaság; Polish; Romanian: Rebublica Vineta; Spanish: República de Vineta
