Meet Linda Kunt (a drunken social worker), Little Nazi (a baby with a big dong), and Smoker (who invited her?). These and many others live in my head. I know, freaky. But your psyche can explode when your own grandpa sexually abuses you. Hey, I’m Marlene. This is a true story with 12 twats and a harp.
“When I experienced violence and sexual abuse as a child I disappeared into the wall paper. I lost many things along the way. Self-worth. Clarity. Trust. My voice….” – Raïna von Waldenburg
12 Minute Madness‘ subject is dark, sinister, and potentially emotion draining, however, the ensemble cast successfully told the story with humor without making light of the situation, which is such a huge accomplishment for playwright and director von Waldenburg
A pleasant surprise at this year’s Fringe, 12 Minute Madness will make you think, laugh, and squirm, thanks to a cast that clearly works so well together to be able to create awareness on a problem that families and society are continually fighting.
