8-part tragicomic operetta radio play set in a retirement home
Wunderbaum & HERMESensemble (NL/BE)
An 8-part tragicomic operetta radio play set in and around a retirement home. Enraged Elderly is a comedy of errors riddled with miscommunications as well as romantic, saccharine and warm moments. Simultaneously, as befits an operetta, it is sharply critical of how we deal with health care and with the elderly.
Having published an online radio play, the WUNDERBAUM collective presents an in-person version with eight actors, four musicians, two singers, one conductor and a radio-play specialist live on stage. Annelies Verbeke and Gaea Schoeters wrote the texts. Annelies Van Parys composed new music and arranged arias from the classical operetta repertoire.
