  • Overview

    World premiere play by David Grimm
    Directed by Kate Whoriskey

    Tony Award winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur, Midnight in Paris) returns to MTC as Heléna, a woman who has lost her husband in World War I, and with him, her financial security. Struggling to maintain her way of life, she reluctantly turns to the oldest profession. Heléna manages to separate her secret life from her public persona – that is until she crosses paths with a man who has the power to expose and ruin her.

    David Grimm's witty and beautifully poetic new work also features Drama Desk Award winner and Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant (Wit, Angels in America). Set as an enormous political tide is turning throughout Europe, TALES FROM RED VIENNA explores the effects of war on women, the circumstances that control their lives and the dreams that set them free.

    Some performances of TALES FROM RED VIENNA are currently SOLD OUT. Best available performances are April 18th – April 27th.

    In addition, last-minute cancellation tickets may become available on the day of the performance, as follows:
