2F / 2M

"Either I kill you, or you kill me, or we break up, or we just go on" – this is Katarina's laconic assessment of her long-term relationship with Frank. And as the two, who hate each other with a vengeance but can't be without each other, don't want to spent another evening alone together in their upscale apartment, they invite the couple next door over. The stylish digs become the setting for a merciless psychological battle. "Norén is the grand master of dialogue. The banalities of his worn out everyday locutions are so cleverly interwoven... that they give voice to the unspoken aggressions, with their most delicate shades.” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) "A spooky play about love. Or rather: The loss of it." (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
