Monologue for a Murderer

Oct 29 - Nov 09, 2014 | La Mama


"I dreamed up a story in the arrogant hope that it would mean something.”
 
On 26 April 2002, in the German city of Erfurt, 19-year-old Robert Steinhäuser entered his former high school with two semi-automatic weapons and killed 17 people. On the tenth anniversary, a writer visited Erfurt to research the event for a play. 
 
Kate Rice (writer Sweetest Things – nominated Best Play 2013 Australian Writers’ Guild awards) imagines what happened, what might have happened, and the meaning of the Erfurt school shooting.
