Albee’s marital dystopia from 1962 has been resurrected at the Deutsches Theater. Ulrich Matthes as George hasn’t gone off the boil – he’s completely burnt out, a haunting, ashen mask of pain. Corinna Harfouch as the battleaxe Martha is torn apart by a lust for life and hunger for love. And the hopes for the future, Nick and Honey (Alexander Khuon, Katharina Schmalenberg); still unaware, not as wrecked or as dangerous, not yet such virtuosos of destruction, but already corrupted. The party from hell on New Carthage campus is always recognizably a Gosch production with its clear, direct and even-tempered atmosphere, its switches of mood and elegant choreography. Exceptional theatre.

“The most exciting theatre in Berlin” (Neues Deutschland)
“An inscrutable web of contradictions” (Theater heute)
