Georg Büchner
Theater Thalhaus, Wiesbaden
Premiere: April 5th, 2003

Georg Büchner's ironic and buoyant play, realized here by a group of mentally disabled actors, tells the story of two young people who escape from their gilded cages. Their respective flights provide them with their first experience of elemental life: Thirst and hunger, the dictates of nature, physical exhaustion, pure fear for their lives – until they finally meet and share the experience of love.
For mentally handicapped people this is a story that relates to their lives. Well cared for in special kindergartens and schools, in living situations and workplaces tailored to their needs, they live in a kind of parallel world.
