The Arena Berlin is also looking forward to its female counterpart to the Caveman: – CAVEWOMAN!
Sex, lies and lipsticks – CAVEWOMAN Heike uses the last hours before the wedding ceremony to give the embarrassingly early wedding guests a quick course in man-woman relationships. And that with a good portion of anger in her stomach. Or what would you say if your husband disappeared one night before the wedding just because you said “Get lost! But don’t worry: CAVEWOMAN is not a feminist large-scale attack on the common species man – it’s rather a pleasurable look at the coexistence of two different beings who have to share a planet, a country, a city and the worst: ONE APARTMENT!
Heike, Tom’s future wife, settles this brilliant solo show against the self-proclaimed “Lords of Creation”. Sometimes with the rough Stone Age club, sometimes with the pointed, perfectly groomed nails of a modern cavewoman – but always apt and hilarious! A theatre evening that will astonish you and above all make you laugh, because we have always known that if men were as good lovers as they think, women wouldn’t have time to do their hair!
