After the highly successful production «Uzivo Frau Stirnimaa!», the Basel-based director and actor Lorenz Nufer adopts a new format with «Im Bau», staging an intimate tragicomical play set around a kitchen table. A young woman tells her parents during a birthday meal for her father that she has recently become engaged to a prison inmate. She therefore triggers a conflict that unleashes unexpected and suppressed emotions, forcing everyone to address their own conceptions of life, morals, taboos, guilt and forgiveness. The text is based on interviews, conversations and press articles that focus on the relationship between society and prisoners.
A production by LCF-Theaterproduktion in co-production with Kaserne Basel and Theater Tuchlaube Aarau
