Vienna, 1923. A discontented post-War generation diagnose youth to be their sickness and do their best to destroy it. “Bourgeois existence or suicide, there are no other choices!” Pitiless and bored, seven sexually entangled medical students, start a dangerous game – will they be strong enough not only to survive but to win the game. The young ensemble of Royal District Theatre acclaimed for its radical, innovative interpretations of classical texts (Women of Troy; Miss Julie) offers a new journey into multilateral, detailed, deep psychological drama seasoned with intellectual reflection.
