Theodore Tagger (Ferdinand Bruckner) was born in Vienna, but grew up in Graz. He studied music, medicine and law in Vienna, Paris and Berlin, where he founded, in 1923, the theatre he was to direct until 1927. In 1933 Bruckner returned to Vienna, but he soon emigrated, first to France, then, in 1933, to America.

Pains Of Youth

Vienna, 1923. A discontented post-war generation diagnose youth to be their sickness and do their best to destroy it. Promiscuous, pitiless and bored, six sexually entangled medical students restlessly wander in and out of a boarding house, cramming, drinking, taunting, spying. Freder sets about savagely experimenting with the young, pretty maid, with half an eye on his former lover Desiree, a wild, disillusioned aristocrat. Petrell abandons Marie for the ruthless underdog Irene. Marie doesn't waste any time weeping - Desiree wants her.

Synopsis:

1926 play. Medical students experiment with drugs, alcohol, lust and how to live life. Knowing how to kill and cure, reckless human desires compete with their factual knowledge. They learn that the power of words can change relationships and lives. Anything could happen at any moment as their youthful crises become more than just pubescent angst. Challenging and intense.

1933. In a university town in Western Germany, two young medical students, Karlanner and his friend, Tessow, debate the future of their country and that of Karlanner's relationship with his Jewish girlfriend, Helene. The elections draw near, Karlanner is thrown into a state of confusion. Persuaded to attend a Party meeting, he comes away swayed, and soon the elections confirm that the National Socialist Party has won. Now a member, Karlanner struggles with his beliefs, but no matter how repellent he finds the Nazis, he can't seem to shake them. Helene had changed his life, and he still loves her, so when he learns that she is in danger, his world crumbles around him. Finally, at any cost, he must take a stand.

Apart from very popular and world touring productions, many performing arts events are largely forgotten about in a matter of months. Traces may remain in various collections, but few collecting agencies, such as libraries, catalogue each flyer or program individually. Hence, unless one knows that an event took place at a certain time in a certain place, tracking down such an event as part of a research project is often a matter of chance. Where research needs to be carried out on high profile and well-documented productions only, this is not a problem. However, both the historian and the analyst will attest that the cultural, political, or sociological context in which a performing arts event takes place is also of major importance, as are the other events that took place in close proximity, either in place or time. A good overview of such productions provides us with a 'social document' that can greatly enhance cultural studies in ways that extend far beyond the narrow confines of theatre history. For instance, data such as this can be used to monitor the health of communities, particularly when used in association with data obtained from other social science disciplines. When one researches a particular playwright one might want to know about all the productions of plays by that author; if one wants to investigate what choices a particular audience had over a period of history and compare this to, say, an ethnic breakdown of the population, one would need to know broadly all the events that took place during that time. If one wanted to do a statistical analysis on the shift in popularity of a genre over one or more generations, it is important to have knowledge of most of the relevant major and minor performance events that took place. In this context, issues of aesthetic quality and the professionalism of a production - which will of course have an impact on such studies - are not the determining factors when deciding to include or exclude events, since all events are the raw material for such research.
