A didactic play without teaching by Max Frisch

Max Frisch wrote this fable of Biedermann, the hair-water manufacturer, 65 years ago, and yet his "Lehrstück ohne Lehre" (as the subtitle goes) is as topical and contemporary as ever! Mr. Biedermann (Dieter Hallervorden) rants a lot about the dangers of fire and the arsonists, and yet good-naturedly and trustingly takes in the wrestler Schmitz (Georgios Tsivanoglou) and his shady sidekick Eisenring (Mario Ramos) - along with their barrels full of gasoline ...

In front of himself and his wife (Christiane Zander), his maid Anna (Dagmar Biener) and the assembled fire department (Oliver Seidel), he keeps finding new excuses and justifications, finally handing the fuses to the arsonists himself.

"Joking is the third best disguise. The second best is sentimentality. But the best is still the bare and naked truth. Strangely enough. No one believes it," writes Frisch (not Putin...). Of course, Mr. and Mrs. Biedermann end up in hell - there the devil asks who is to blame for the deception: the deceiver or the one who lets himself be deceived...? 

This successful play by Max Frisch is a modern classic (which has never run at Schlosspark Theater before!) that must be seen or seen again: funny, contemporary and clever! 

Premiere: March 18, 2023, Schlosspark Theater
