Volta International Play Festival debuts this year with five new plays by award-winning writers from across the world translated into English for the first time. The festival will be staged at the Arcola Theatre in Hackney and features ‘Hamlet is Dead. No Gravity’ by Austrian playwright Ewald Palmetshofer directed by VOLTA artistic director Andrea Ferran.

Something’s rotten in Mani and Dani’s childhood home. Bine and Oli got married, but did they make the right choice? Kurt has a secret, and his wife Caro knows it. Hannes is dead, but who pulled the trigger?

With cruel comedy, past recriminations and sensational revelations, Ewald Palmetshofer presents a dark vision of a family in crisis.

Palmetshofer’s radical English-language debut leaps between sex, death and metaphysics, to explore the search for truth among the inescapable ghosts of the past. Winner of the 2015 Mülheimer Dramatik Prize, Palmetshofer’s plays are currently performed at the Burgtheater in Vienna.
