THE BITTER TEARS

OF PETRA VON KANT

By Rainer Werner Fassbinder, adapted by Katja Hill

May 3-19, 2007

 

Sharpen your nails and batten down your compact before you witness Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s classic melodrama of thwarted ambition, treacherous sexuality and desperate power struggles.

 

Frau von Kant, a widowed and divorced fashion designer, comes under the spell of a beautiful but uncouth model while straining to maintain appearances before her long-suffering secretary, her untrustworthy friend, her mother, and her teenaged daughter.
