SYNOPSIS

 

Whoever gets close, gets burned.

 

There’s something going on with Kurt and Olga.

 

Kurt loves Olga. Olga loves Kurt. They want to be together forever, without ever having to grow up and become like Mum and Dad. They’re just normal siblings trying to escape the endless humiliation of being a teenager.

 

But when Olga meets her first boyfriend, Kurt’s obsession turns to anger and his dangerous hobby threatens to burn their world to the ground.

 

This family is about to explode.

 

Marius Von Mayenburg (The Ugly One, Moving Target, Schaubühne's Hamlet), one of Germany’s most exciting playwrights, delves deep behind the façade of the family home to reveal a world filled with sexual desire, violent liberation and destruction.
