I’m just a man that have had many different experiences- and learned that everything in this world has a price

Serendipity Productions’ UK Premier of Arthur Schnitzler’s “Fräulein Else” is an erotically charged production coming to London this October, presenting  this previously unseen classic by of one great Middle European Dramatist of the 20th century. Set in an exclusive Hotel in the 1920’s Italian Alps, the piece focuses on an innocent young girl and her dealings in a world run by power and sex and a terrible choice that she has to make.

Director Anna Ostergren said, “This undiscovered classic is an important piece and relevant for many reasons, not in the least because as it addresses decisions and choices that some women unfortunately still face, in this day and age, on a day to day basis.”

The production follows sharply on the heels of Anna Ostergren’s directorial debut of “The Tempest” and “Much Ado” which sold out at the Drayton Arms Theatre, London in July and August. She has previously worked with The Globe, Opera North and The Chocolate factory.  This year she was assistant director for the Rose Theatre’s theatre production of “The Lady from the Sea” staring Joely Richardson.  Anna trained at LAMDA.

Serendipity Productions was founded this year (2012) the specific aim to convey definitive classic works in scaled-back venues, and to give young directors the chance to get experience on a central London stage.  It aims to give due attention to the pure language and form of classics that made them true achievements of theatre.

The company’s production of Fraulein Else will run from October 30th until the 24th of November, performed nightly from Tuesday to Saturday. Tickets cost £12, and £10 for concessions.
