VODKA TALKS when on the night of their father’s funeral two sisters reveal hidden secrets in a family drama, in the English-Language world premiere of Danish cult author Arne Nielsen’s thrilling debut stage play directed by Lars Junggreen.

VODKA TALKS follows two sisters’ conversation as they sort through their late father’s estate, in their family villa on the edge of Lake Constance, after their father's funeral. Edda, married to Robert, has children, the other, Freya, lives her life as a failed artist in changing relationships. Their father has left all his money to the German right-winged political party AFD. The only posession he passes on to his daughters is the family villa, tying them to their past, which especially Freya has been trying to escape from. Digging up the secrets of their childhood requires a glass of vodka – or two… As the sisters' conversation evolves into first and current loves, a discussion about religion and politics, the many hidden mysteries contained in the house unfold bit by bit. The  early death of their mother, the door to Mama's room which has been locked for years , the housekeeper Anna-Maria and in the end, two letters which will reveal the truth.
