Co-production of the play DIE FAMILIE SCHROFFENSTEIN by Heinrich von Kleist - work is a verbose tragedy of misunderstandings of two families as enemies, though with the same roots, a kind of Romeo and Juliet storyline, and comparable to the humor of Quentin Tarantino.

DIE FAMILIE SCHROFFENSTEIN can be read as a warning against war rhetoric and miscommunication in the modern world, Tanja Weidener’s version shows a contact between two families that differ culturally, historically and ideologically, German and Russian.

Two houses, but just one family: The Schroffensteins are subdivided into the houses of Warwandt and Rossitz. Their connection is an age-old inheritance contract: if one branch of the family dies off the other inherits the entire estate thereof. This sparks mistrust from the very beginning and when a young boy drowns the rumor mill starts to move at full force. Quickly, accusations of murder are spread. The blind urge of retaliation and pure hatred are clouding any sense of reality and a dialogue becomes impossible. One misunderstanding follows another and an added war rhetoric yields into a vicious circle of violence. In the middle of this enmity a young couple is gingerly seeking their happiness and in order to discover the magic of their love they find shelter in a cave – however the hunt on them has already started.
