A well made dramatization of Günter Grass’ masterpiece “Die Blechtrommel” from 1959. On his three-years-birthday Oskar throws himself down the basement stairs determined on never to grow again – and so it goes. Oskar bare a witness to the rise of Nazism in the 1930’s Danzig, which doesn’t captivate him. With his clear voice and his tin drum, he exposes the bourgeoisies’ dream of a settled society. The play premiered at the Ruhrtriennalen in Bochum in September 2010 and will be staged at the Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin.
