A panorama of the bourgeois state of unrest

Was that it? Was that us? Or is there still something to come? The summer guests flee from these questions and from themselves to the country house of the lawyer Bassow. The writer Shalimov could offer answers, moral classifications. But he has writer's block at the moment. Erotic distractions abound, but no one has any illusions about love any more. Gorky wrote the play in 1904 on the eve of the revolution and the great wars of the 20th century. Are depoliticisation and the bourgeois tendency towards comfort already forms of doom? Director Stefan Pucher is staging at Theater Basel for the first time since 2012.
