Insurance salesman Finn opens his eyes one morning and knows that he never wants to get up again. His sister Linda has seen a wolf and hopes that her almost bankrupt thermal baths will soon stand on the site of a nature preserve. Their father Erwin would just once like to have a normal conversation about the weather or astrology. Monika, a sales clerk in a supermarket, has been promised a promotion by her boss – perhaps to run a store in Holland. Thomas, her policeman husband, would come along. Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt have the feeling they’re being watched – by an animal? The pregnant Mira doesn’t want her unborn child. But Josef, the baby’s father, absolutely wants to have it. Gabi and Rainer are apartment hunting – or perhaps just pretending they are. Ira, an older woman, is missing her husband. He just went out for a walk, didn’t he? Dea Loher interweaves these individual episodes. The characters encounter one another in different situations and meet again in surprising ways. A dark and yet comic panorama of people of our time emerges – always peering into the abyss, yet ever hopeful.
The Deutsches Theater is a theatrical institution with a permanent and highly-acclaimed ensemble. Behind its classical façade, the Deutsches Theater is home to three stages: the main stage, built in 1850, with its intimate auditorium that seats 600; the “Kammerspiele,” which holds some 230 spectators; and the Box, a compact black box which opened in 2006. The Deutsches Theater repertoire comprises some 50 productions. Each season the DT celebrates some 30 premieres. Signature productions, ongoing collaborations with established and up-and-coming directors, and faith in the abilities of his spirited and talented ensemble: these are the cornerstones of Ulrich Khuon’s artistic concept for the Deutsches Theater. Khuon (artistic director since 2009) has brought on board directors with distinctive directing styles, including: Andreas Kriegenburg (as the theatre’s senior director), Stephan Kimmig, Michael Thalheimer, Dimiter Gotscheff and Nicolas Stemann. The theatre’s repertoire includes classics, modern classics and also contemporary playwrights.
