Tax fraud investigators searched private rooms and confiscated papers. Later, the charges were dropped. Still, the Personal Details will remain. Setting out from charges raised by the state, Elfriede Jelinek interlaces the paths of capital with the paths of her life. The attempt to establish a tax debt evolves into a wider questioning of identity. Jelinek delves into rich associations as she considers her parents and grandparents, tells about the Jewish part of her family, recounts expulsion and murder, writes about compensation payments made to the persecutors (not the victims) and about modern-day Nazis. It is also the tale of the end of a story: ‘After me, that’ll be the end of the Jelineks, no changing that!’ Director Jossi Wieler, who has a long history of staging the Nobel Prize winner’s works, has structured the diatribe into three monologues: Linn Reusse, Fritzi Haberlandt and Susanne Wolff turn prosecution by the state into a prosecution of the state. A defendant turns lawyer and judge.
