An interactive play about national identity, politics and change.

London 2026. A Government with autocratic tendencies is in power. New laws affecting taxes and immigration have been passed in parliament. A young woman who grew up in Great Britain but possesses a German passport, a Brazilian activist and an Australian influencer meet in Safestay Hostel. The new laws are making life difficult for the Finnish owner and the guests. Should they obey the law or take action against it? The Brazilian woman wants to take to the streets and demonstrate, the young woman who grew up in Great Britain is afraid, the influencer is undecided and the Finnish owner wants to avoid trouble in her hostel at all costs. The repressive government is threatening the foundations of democracy and in banning the demonstration is violating the right of free speech.

"Eingespielter Jubel, der mögliche Wahlsieg einer rechtskonservativen Partei – Tony Rice, der Anführer der Partei, lässt sich feiern. Peter Scollins Auftritt ist, nach längerer Bühnenabstinenz des Platypus-Chefs, so überzeugend, dass einem ganz unbehaglich zumute wird. Science Fiction, bedrohlich nah an der Gegenwart. Dass dem rigorosen Anführer auf bekloppte Weise die Haare zu Berge stehen, ist seit Boris Johnson leider kein Satire-Signal mehr. (...) Die Geschichte malt auf erschreckende Weise aus, was passieren könnte, wenn „Ausländer raus“-Parolen konsequent in Politik umgesetzt würden. Und England ist nur ein Beispiel für das, was in Europa gerade hochkommt. (...) Kleine Mitmachspielchen lockern auf und halten die jungen Zuschauer dran." (4 von 5 Sternen)

Students from Kopernikus Gymnasium

”We loved the way you used the camera for different aspects.(...) The acting was amazing. (….) The tweets are great. (…) We liked the topics politics, racism, family trouble and money problems."

9. Schulpraktisches Seminar

"Your approach to break the fourth wall was very motivating and activating. Students obviously enjoyed being involved - before, during and after the play. The elements of modern communication and current political issues are of our students daily life and therefore highly relevant"
