About the pieces:
The Bell Jar, adapted from Sylvia Plath's famous semi-autobiographic novel is about a young woman struggling with depression and emotional isolation. She feels like she cannot fit in, and a desperate search for self-identity begins.
Diggerdriver is based on the blog of an expat, a heavy machine operator who left Hungary and settled in London, hoping for a better future. He tells us about the ups and downs of living far from home.
Ghetto Sheriff is a super successful performance of the company, funny and moving, heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time. It tries to deal with the biggest trauma of the 20th century, the Holocaust, by reciting Jewish jokes and songs, and various documents from the 30’s and 40’s.
Death of a Salesman
Willy Loman spends an increasing amount of time in the past, on the border of fantasy and reality. He no longer earns money, and there are no reserves. His sons are good-for-nothing layabouts with big plans that he himself planted in their heads. Once he also had big plans but dreams remained dreams – and they devoured the little future that remained.
