Monologue for a robber

“Only those who know the robber really know the forest. You have to understand the forest if you want to understand the robber.”
The robber lives in the depths of the forest. He g-roars and scares the bears, g-robs the hikers, g-shoots with conkers and his socks g-stink to high heaven. There are many gruesome stories about him but hardly anybody knows him well. A young researcher sets out alone on an expedition into the unknown to track down the robber. He stays a whole month with him and in the centre of the forest he has his greatest adventure.

The realization of this production was supported by the Sparkassenstiftung Erfurt.
