Harold and Maude

Two 10th grades and the English drama group went to see the comedy Harold and Maude in Rüsselsheim Theatre. (17/3/08) It was one of the classic cult movies and best loved plays in the Nineteen Seventies. Harold and Maude is a charming love story, a macabre black comedy, a biting satire and a trip down nostalgia lane.

Its the story of a rich and spoiled young man who meets the elderly and wonderful eccentric Maude. Harold learns to enjoy life and Maude learns to die and the comedy reaches its tragic but deeply satisfying conclusion.
