Wurlitza Performance: Diary of a Lost Girl


Wurlitza Performance: Diary of a Lost Girl

Saturday 20th April 2024

Whet your appetite for silent cinema with Theatre Royal Plymouth. The world premiere stage adaptation of The Artist, the 1920s Hollywood love story, is coming to TRP from 11–25 May.

Dir. G. W. Pabst, Germany, 1929, 110 mins. Silent with live music accompaniment. Cast. Louise Brooks.

We are delighted to welcome the brilliant Wurlitza back to PAC as part of our silent cinema season with Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Fast moving and at times shocking, Diary of a Lost Girl traces the story of Thymian, played by the mesmerising screen idol Louise Brooks, as her life yoyos between episodes of lightness and innocence, darkness and hope. Made in Germany at a time of great artistic freedom this gripping film defies convention and confounds expectation, as joy and compassion are found in the most unlikely places. Moments of unexpected comedy include life in a reform school for fallen girls headed by a villainous nun and a modern dance lesson with an incompetent buffoon.

Wurlitza’s soundtrack took over two years to create and includes everything from Bach to Kraftwerk to Leonard Cohen.

Tickets £14 / £12 concessions. PAC Friends 10% off (please note membership complimentary tickets are not eligible for this event).
