Acting by Jason Hall

A gripping neighborhood thriller where the strange is just a wall away. They are neighbors in a new housing complex, so they meet HE -“No. 11” and YOU -“No. 12”, meet again and again in the hallway and get to know each other. He has just moved in, is wealthy, and seems very interested in his neighbor, who is rather reserved and down-to-earth.


The relationship begins harmlessly, receiving mail, communal gossip, a DVD evening. The topic of their conversation becomes more and more frequent: Who lives behind the door “No. 10”, in front of which there are always full garbage bags. These will soon become a stumbling block. But instead of talking to each other, the neighbors start a psychological war that eventually derails.

How well do you know your neighbors? Young, cheeky, disturbing - Hitchcock could have been the inspiration!

A two-person play that plays with the unknown and hints and takes the viewer into the diffuse expectation of an unexpected event. A piece that fits into the genre of chamber play, the play in an intimate space that focuses on the impact of the conversations between the characters.

Canadian playwright Jason Hall wrote a special play here, which premiered in London in 2011. The piece captivated the audience from start to finish. At the beginning the piece seemed like a comedy with everyday scenes in the hallway of an apartment building - in which a good level of suspense was already built up - but after the break it became more and more of a drama in which the tension was almost breaking. At times, absolutely nothing could be heard from the audience - as if everyone was holding their breath.

German version: Peter and John von Düffel
