About the show
“Poles, Dutch and Belgians in the Circle, Norwegians and Russians in the gallery. Bulgars and some Italians in the Circle Bar.”
Welcome to the Hoftheater of Deutscheshof. The British have occupied this small town and are now housing all the displaced persons in the theatre. You’ll find the corridors crowded with refugees from the camps, and there are bodies piled up in the boiler room. Best find a spot quick as we’re expecting hundreds more to arrive within the next few days. Keep an eye that your luggage doesn’t get stolen. And for signs of plague. Just stick to the rules and we’ll all get out of this alright.
