"For those who don't want to conveniently avoid a harsh reckoning with pink ballon slogans such as "My home, how lovely are you" should go see the fantastically directed and acted wild ride into the abyss of human lost souls."
"Convincing. Monday night the Schlösslekeller Production Fägfüür opened the first half of the 2017/2018 season. A production by the Liechtenstein director Katrin Hilbe that moves you on many levels. 'I enjoy working in Liechtenstein', says Katrin Hilbe, who lives in New York. 'There's a sizeable talent pool here.' The five actors prove this without a doubt. Their expressions underpinning the words, the energy of their presence, and the talent with which they drew in the entire audience, are absolutely convincing. She really enjoyed showing her work in her home country, Hilbe says: ' The audience is very receptive.' And it is interested: Opening night was sold out. The message the audience should take home with them is the following, according to Katrin Hilbe: 'It's important never to forget your fellow man, and switch out egoism with empathy.'"
