REVIEWS


Ronald Pohl, Der Standard, 14.05.2014: 

"Ein solider Verhörthriller (Regie: Alexander Medem). Zwar spielt Katharina Tiwalds neues Stück Stalins Heiliger in der jüngeren Vergangenheit und ist in Moskau angesiedelt, genauer gesagt: in einem Verhörkeller des russischen Inlandsgeheimdienstes. Doch die Autorin hat es sich nicht nehmen lassen, dem mörderischen Autokraten zu einem Comeback zu verhelfen. Das Stück ist aller Ehren wert."
