81_PalaisPosterPalais Kokoschka, inspired by the paintings of Gustav Klimt, tells the story of 1912 trophy wife, Elisabeth. To avoid scandal, Elisabeth has married upstart Moravian industrialist Vasik and come to live in his brand new, Art Nouveau mansion. Gradually, she comes to recognize that those around her—her husband, the maid, and even the house’s architect—are conspiring to control the most intimate details of her life. Aided by the vision of Gustav Klimt, she must rejoin her estranged, saucy alter ego and wage a deadly battle for self-determination.

This will be the official free, public presentation of this brand new, Delaware Division of the Arts award-winning work.
