Synopsis

Dani and Mani, brother and sister, come home for their grandma’s birthday.  But they also attend a funeral, where they run into Bine and Oli, who are now married.  Oli used to be interested in Dani, way back when they were all friends.  Relationships among family and friends shift, morph and are never what they seem – inevitably, something is going to happen.  In this play, Ewald Palmetshofer weaves language and rhythm into something comic and threatening that ultimately leaves just one question open: To resign or to act?

Director: Anna Bahow
