Nachtwache

(Night Watch)
(Nattvarden)
2F / 2M

Night Watch picks up on the themes of the play Demons once more: John's mother has died, John and Charlotte have just returned home from the cremation. There they have an argument - about their social standing, their supposedly screwed-up lives, the upcoming visit of John's brother and wife, who will arrive soon after. In the end the situation escalates. Night Watch is a demonstration of the "everyday madness of the western world: people who have been robbed of their capacity to form attachments by progressive capitalism... a true piece of art about the possibilities of hurting each other" (Frankfurter Rundschau) and a "nightmarish comedy of tragedy" (Theater heute).
