Elisabeth Fritzl shocked over dungeon dad stage show plansJanuary 20th, 2009 - 2:04 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 20 (ANI): Josef Fritzl’’s daughter Elisabeth, who bore her father seven children while held captive in a cellar for 24 years, is said to be shocked by an Austrian theatre’’s plans to stage a play based on the dungeon fiend.
A theatre in Vienna is planning on producing a soap opera based on the life of Fritzl.
The Raum-Anatomie theatre said the show will be titled “Pension Fritzl” German for “Fritzl’’s Bed and Breakfast” and will run from February 23rd.
Controversial comedian Hubert Kramar is set to star in the show, reports Sky News.
Quoting organisers the Austrian Times stated that the production is a satire on the Austrian society that allowed the horrific incest to take place.
But friends of Elisabeth say the 42-year-old is horrified by the plans.
“What happened to Elisabeth is no laughing matter,” one family friend told the Austrian Times.
“It upsets her that anyone could think what happened to her is a suitable subject for entertainment, the pal added.
Fritzl, 73, has been charged with murder, rape, slavery, incest, imprisonment and abuse.
He faces life in prison if convicted at his trial, which is expected to take place in March this year.
The case only came to light last year when one of Elisabeth’’s daughters was taken ill and admitted to hospital. (ANI)
