GESCHLOSSENE GESELSCHAFT by Jan Paul Sartre

Performed in German

Zwei Frauen, die reiche Estelle und die Postangestellte Inès, und der Journalist Garcin finden sich nach ihrem Tod in einem geschlossenen Raum, der Hölle, wieder. Alle drei sind sich bewusst, dass sie sich in der Hölle befinden und machen sich auf das Schlimmste gefasst. Aber die erwartete Folter und die körperlichen Qualen stellen sich nicht ein. Tastend versuchen sie voneinander den Grund für die Höllenfahrt zu erfahren, ohne jedoch ihre eigene Schuld zu offenbaren. Sehr bald entdecken sie, dass sie zu ihren eigenen Folterknechten bestimmt sind, denn „Die Hölle, das sind die anderen!“

EDWARD II by Christopher Marlowe

Hot on the heels of his coronation, Edward II recalls his lover Gaveston from exile, lavishing him with titles and riches. Their all-consuming lust makes enemies of the furious barons and bishops, alienates the King’s once-devoted Queen and tears England to pieces. Ultimately, the monarch himself is destroyed as are many of those who stood both at his side and in his way.
