A Piece of Plastic
German avant-garde theater brings us “A Piece of Plastic”, playing upon the premise of family as artificial as the theater. A fast-moving play that takes place between slamming doors and that bitterly criticizes society with an acid sense of humor. Our cameras take everything in with settings that bring us closer to the most dizzying expressions.
"Cruel" is set in only one room where two men and a woman are confronted and play a sort of psychological manipulation game.

A Happy End
Set in 1932-33, "A Happy End" is the story of Mark and Leah Erdmann, a Jewish couple living in Berlin with their son. Although the signs of danger increase as the Nazi Party takes power, the family ponders whether to seek an unknown future outside their beloved Germany or stay.

A Year Later
This one-act play, written specifically for this renowned pair of actors, retells 30 years from two lives. The text, an original piece by Tony Laudadio, uses fragments to recompose, in 30 flashes from 30 days (one day per year), the story of two people who work in the same office, and are forced to permanently share the same physical place.
