Interview With Tiffany Stern

During the holidays Hidden Room actor Liz Fisher and our Director of Technology Robert Matney and sat down with Professor Tiffany Stern in her rooms at University College, Oxford to talk about her research into, and the Hidden Room’s production of, Der Bestrafte Brudermord. 

With adroit scholarship and surpassing charm, she discusses how Brudermord may or may not historically have been a puppet play. With the editorial finesse of Lowell Bartholomee, we bring you that chat in a brief version and an unabridged version.

“Theater has problems and theater in a theater-y way solves those problems. And I think what has been so exciting for working not just with Beth but working with the Hidden Room and this amazing company, there you can really combine research and practice and bring something new and incredible. It is very very exciting for me.”
