Hot summer night in the woods. Beeches, oaks, pine trees, lindens, a willow here and there … A minivan. Beer cans, cola, water, wine, a glass of Cognac, ketchup, mayonnaise, cheese, plastic bags with veggies, bread, sausages, cutlets, plates, cutlery, a bag of coal, portable barbecue. Spices. A guitar. And more. And more. The nature all around is very beautiful. A splendid summer night in a marvellous forest. Something occurs that will change everything. An Event.
It is the Event that holds the central place in the three-act play by the young German playwright Anja Hilling. The author thrusts her fairly well-off characters from a contemporary environment into a calamity – a fire ignited by their own awkwardness. In her text Hilling wanted to test the catastrophe in relation to the minuteness of human life. Her writing bears traits of the new brutalism in contemporary dramatic literature, a tendency that goes one step beyond.
