'I want to get to where you are, except that I'll be happy. And not as fucked up as you.'


You want to leave.
You’ll probably have to stay.
You’re suffocating at your own Christmas party.
You want to know what the problem is.
You want to play Scrabble, not have sex.
You’re in control and you’re absolutely terrified.
You’re being terrorised and no one believes you.
Your psychiatrist doesn’t even remember who you are.
Have you ever dreamed of disappearing without a trace?
From one of Germany’s finest young playwrights comes an award-winning neurotic puzzle and fierce black comedy that will make you stop and take a second look.
