The third work in this “Our Contemporary” series is the breakthrough work for the German playwright Dea Loher who debuted in the 1990s. This play is about domestic sexual abuse that is written rather explicitly, and it emphasizes psychological problems that are latent in modern society. She has won various awards including Frankfurt Author’s Foundation Award (Preis der Frankfurter Autorenstiftung) and Theatre heute’s Young Playwright of the Year Award (Wahl zur Nachwuchsdramatikerin der Jahre in "Theater heute") for this piece.
Okada Toshiki will be the director for this Japanese premiere. He is the president, playwright, and director of the theatre company “chelfitsch” which is known for its use of hip Japanese language and unique staging. He has won the 49th Kishida Kunio Drama Award for his work on “Sangatsu no Itsukakan” (Five Days in March).
