Prussia: 1866
Passionate young scholar Friedrich "Fritz" Nietzsche reveres the tutelage of his mentor, Heinrich. But perhaps not as much as he enjoys the pleasure of Heinrich's wife, Mariska. The forceful, farcical Prussia: 1866 is the wildly inventive, uproarious concoction by Pittsburgh's Gab Cody. Set after the Austro-Prussian war but before the advent of feminism, Prussia: 1866 makes its world premiere at The REP.
