Tattoo is a dark and discordant fairytale, true to the tradition of the Grimm Brothers, about the misuse of power within the last bastion of safety – the family.
Oven-Wolf, a respected village baker and domestic tyrant, reigns fiercely over his family; his muzzled wife, dog-Face Julie, and his two maiden-daughters, Anita and Lulu. As the gingerbread house walls close in, Anita’s chance encounter with the charming Flower-Paul offers hope – and threatens to expose their not-so-sweet world within.
Tattoo is a song of domestic entrapement, forensically detailing the transgression of moral boundaries, by one of Europe’s most lauded and prolific playwrights.
