A play by Sibylle Berg

Evening. A young woman alone in her apartment. Friends Skype her and send chats, text messages arrive, her mother calls. A few floors below, in the basement: a man is tied and gagged. Young women’s fears, desires, and obsessions with success are expressed in their media-saturated lives –but how do they actually want to live their lives?

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents World Voices: International Play Festival 2019: play readings with some of the most significant theatre artists from Germany, all connected to the Gorki Theater in Berlin—a safe haven for immigrant, refugee and international theatre artists in Europe.

The International Play Festival generates a conversation on art, politics, dreams, war, and philosophy, meant to give American audiences a rich awareness of the greater global dialogue.
