This play takes its main character through all eventualities in which odd perceptions force the desperate soul to act. The magic of this surrealistic story, which constantly just scrapes by the probable or feasible, is sustained in a constant state of fine agitation. The production team of director, stage designer and musician creates a fascinating atmosphere of tension in their communal effort to hold the bewildered loser in the balance between the banal and the disconcerting. With their enthusiasm for ridiculous behaviour and bizarre motives the three weave out of this a light and humorous farewell to certainties – and this is certainly one of the most touching moments absurd theatre has produced to date.
