Castle Hill Players Presents 33 Variations

A Quest Driven by Passion Castle Hill Players presents

Written by Moises Kaufman and directed by Jennifer Willison

Following on the back of two successful show with many sold out performances, Castle Hill Players returns with its third offering for 2023, a heartbreakingly real tale that will resonate across the ages.

A musical mystery, a meditation on mortality, an exploration of motherhood and a reflection on the power of art to illuminate. 33 Variations is about one woman’s passion for knowledge and one man’s passion for creation. Katherine, a terminally ill musicologist, is driven to understand why composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, chose to spend precious years composing thirty-three variations based on a mediocre waltz written by a lesser talent. Why was Beethoven driven to complete these musical pieces whilst in declining health and facing almost total deafness?

As we join both these characters on their parallel journeys, scenes interweave between present day and the early 1800s. Wonderfully compelling and extremely rich in wit, pathos, warmth and music. An award-winning Broadway play, 33 Variations will take you on a dramatic journey of discovery.

“33 Variations is fascinating—a play that is funny, mysterious, full of pathos and beautiful music” – Jennifer Willison, Director
