A View of the C

Funny – Inappropriate – Edumacational

“My Neck, My Back, My Neck and My Back!”

Maybe it wasn’t as dramatic as my favorite scene from Friday, but once again those dang Austrians know how to one-up a performance.  With all their Outback commercials and wallabies, you’d think they’d have enough going on right now, but who knows what is really going on? 

Daniel Hovels, member of the Thalia Theater company, used a real knife during a suicide scene in Schiller’s ‘Maria Stuart’ in Austria this week. 

AP VIENNA – An actor’s suicide scene became a little too real for comfort when he accidentally stabbed himself in the neck during a performance at an Austrian theater.  Thalia said Thursday that the original prop knife was damaged and that instructions to blunt the replacement had been “carelessly” disregarded.

Honest Mistake, Disability Scheme, Or Dedicated Actor?
Ezal that is – Daniel’s a goof!
