In mental asylum, the Marquis de Sade revolts together with the other inmates. But who rebels against whom? Who determines what to do? And who may represent whom? The performance collective Monster Truck stages this famous play by Peter Weiss with an amateur cast from Bochum. It is a game between inclusion and execution, between theatre stage and home for the disabled, between power and powerlessness.
It is not the first time Monster Truck has dealt with the staging of disability by non-disabled people. Their meta-plays "Dschingis Khan" (2012) and "Regie" (2014) were created in collaboration with the Thikwa actors Sabrina Braemer, Johnny Chambilla and Oliver Rincke.

Going to the theatre often requires long periods of sitting on more or less comfortable seats in confined spaces. We offer alternatives, so that more people can enjoy the event. At all events there are a variety of options for sitting or laying down, e.g. beanbags, sofas or mattresses. These alternative seats are limited. Please use the Early Boarding or contact us directly after purchasing your ticket.


Co-production: Schauspielhaus Bochum, NTGent. In co-operation with: Lebenshilfe Bochum e.V. Supported by: Psychiatric Clinic Bochum-Ehrenfeld. Funded by: Fund Doppelpass of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
