The production Death car reunites Tom Waits and Robert Wilson, who collaborated on productions like The black rider and Woyzeck, for the first time in 14 years.
Death car is inspired by the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, a romantically involved couple of bankrobbers that defied authorities and caused a national media frenzy in the US in the 1930's.
Their dramatic life is packed with feaurures that continue to fascinate present day audiences all over the world: a sheer lack of respect for banks and authorities, fast cars, weapons, violence, a love story, a desperate escape and their inevitable death.
The play is produced by Nicolai Vemming / UnlimitedArts in collaboration with the Royal Theatre and a number of international partners.
