Liselotte in May

Wednesday, 1 November 2023 Time: 7.30pm
Liselotte in May, written by Zsolt Pozsgai, and starring Rita Sigmond and Alex Gatstramb, is a bittersweet absurd comedy about a gentle, lonely heart.

Love is blind...and in this case melodramatic, depressing, paranoid, clumsy, deranged and disturbed. Liselotte, a woman in her thirties has been caring for an elderly lady for a great many years, and now that her ward is deceased, and she realizes that the years are passing her by without a partner, she desperately tries to find true love in an effort to give her life meaning. Through no fault of her own, each of her prospective partners dies on the first date.

The uniqueness of the story comes from how a woman tries to fight her loneliness by any means necessary. Liselotte's increasingly absurd actions make the story very colorful in terms of tone and message by its bittersweet irony, the tragic comedy and the relatable misery and helplessness one goes through in this kind of emotional journey.
The event is supported by the Consulate General of Hungary in Manchester. After the performance, please join us for a glass of exquisite Hungarian wine and refreshments as a courtesy of the Consulate
