A social panorama of a bourgeoisie that is about to collapse under the pressure of selfishness, alienation and boredom: Three married couples spend some summer days in the country with their friends. While the relationships are undermined by hatred and held together only by worn-out conventions, the air is full of flirtation, envy, showdown, self-pity, resignation and hangovers. Russian classic here in Peter Stein and Botho Strauss’ version for the Schaubühne am Halleschen Ufer Berlin, 1974.
