In an isolated jungle, in a not too distant future, soldiers wage an endless war against an unknown enemy. Supply lines are cut, water is running out, the troops have gone tribal and sex is the only method to identify the aliens who have infiltrated the ranks.
A provocative mash-up of Predator, Alien and Apocalypse Now, infused with the amoral war-as-entertainment swagger of gaming culture , For a Better World is a prize-winning play by one of Germany’s hottest playwrights. War. Aliens. Bikinis. This is not a festival show. “It’s a nightmare: Candide’s “Best of All Possible Worlds” meets Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now”. Neue Zürcher Zeitung
