Einfach das Ende der Welt

After Jean-Luc Lagarce
Staging: Christopher Rüping

Christopher Rüping’s Einfach das Ende der Welt was actually supposed to be performed at the  Schauspielhaus in the spring of 2020. While the whole world didn’t simply come to an end, daily life  did, interrupting rehearsals before the production could take place.

So now it will continue, with the  story of 34-year-old Louis who left his family decades ago and now  returns to his small hometown and his family as a successful artist. He only does so, however, to simply end it, once and for all. But this time, for real.
