Jonas Jagow

Jonas Jagow, “young and ill-tempered”, would love to obliterate the entire universe, but “the Universe is way too large, destroying it would currently be too difficult, so today, I’ll destroy Berlin.” But Berlin proves to be more resilient than expected, and it rears its head, while the angry protagonist whirls through the town – or rather, is being whirled through town. There are diabolical encounters on the late night bus to Wedding, there is Peking Duck in Lichtenberg, and conversations about relationships in the bed of the Queen of Tempelhof; in the subterranean techno club “The Mole” drug dealers meet art dealers, choirs of mayors and assistant mayors perform, and Rosenthaler Platz wants to be heard – again. Eventually, not even an asteroid can harm the city, and all the protagonist wants is “to get out of here”.
This play was awarded the Sponsorhip Award for New Drama at the playwright’s’ showcase within the Theatertreffen 2012.
