“Zum Teufel mit der Jugend” (To hell with youth) is a play about two women who meet on the inevitable path to old age. One is in her early forties, the other in her late fifties. They decide to stop time and play together: scenes about crises and catastrophes, abysses, moments of misfortune and happiness as they grow older. So they wander through the topic, in different roles, times, situations and ages. They transform into child, boy, man, mother, daughter, angel of death and life, mourning woman and happy old woman.
The theater and screenwriter Holger Franke (Alles auf Zucker), who lives in the neighborhood, once developed the piece with two actresses: “Aging is a timeless topic. It's eternally relevant and too serious to treat without humor. Thirty years since its premiere, the piece has aged well, remained young and has matured pleasantly." A game about growing old and young - for young, middle-aged and old people. A game for everyone.
