Prussia: 1866

Written by Gab Cody
Directed by Kim Martin

Warning: Play contains brief nudity

Friday February 6 - Sunday February 22
Rauh Theatre, Pittsburgh Playhouse

Passionate young scholar Friedrich “Fritz” Nietzsche reveres the tutelage of his mentor, Heinrich. But perhaps not as much as he enjoys the pleasure of Heinrich’s wife, Mariska. The forceful, farcical Prussia: 1866 is the wildly inventive, uproarious concoction by Pittsburgh’s Gab Cody. Set after the Austro-Prussian war but before the advent of feminism, Prussia: 1866 makes its world premiere at The REP.

Kim Martin has directed The REP’s productions of Becky’s New Car, The Lonesome West, and Mojo. A graduate of Point Park University, Martin has directed, acted in, and stage-managed more than 150 productions. Some favorites include Glengarry Glen Ross, Guys & Dolls, Drinking in America, Deathtrap, The Dumb Waiter, Annie, La Ronde and Three Sisters. Martin is the Director of Production at the Playhouse, and serves as an adjunct faculty member instructing students pursuing a technical theatre degree.
