By Ingmar Bergman, translated by Renate Bleibtreu.

Fanny and Alexander grow up in the lively world of a theatre family - until their father dies and their mother marries a bishop. In the ascetic churchyard, generations, truths and lifestyles quickly collide and a bitter battle breaks out between children and stepfather.

This year's Schaubude Berlin production goes back to the beginnings of moving pictures and interprets Ingmar Bergman's opulent film classic as a stage-surrounding Laterna Magica. Three technicians of the imagination tell the story of two children in search of their place in the adult world at a magic video table with shadow and paper theatre. An image-rich live radio play about truth and lies, reality and fiction, flanked by ghosts, puppets and divine apparitions.
