The biggest book-release brouhaha award of 2015 must go to Michel Houellebecq’s novel Submission. The wry dystopian fiction, set in 2022 after a political party called the Muslim Brotherhood has been democratically elected, was released the day of the Charlie Hebdo shootings. Directors have made quick work of adapting the novel for the stage, despite the work’s difficulty: it was presented in Hamburg in February. Now, Submission comes to the Deutsches Theater in a premiere from house director Stephan Kimmig. With English surtitles.
