Lutz Hübner's piece "Gretchen 89FF" gives the audience a deep, unfiltered, and uproarious look into the world of theater. The constellation is as simple as it is ingenious: an actress, a director, a world-famous scene from the theater literature. In a rapid alternation, the most diverse characters rehearse the "casket scene" from Goethe's "Faust I", Reclam book, page 89, and following. Stereotypes arise where a lot of truth also lies, and thus all neuroses, quirks, sensibilities, talented and not-so-talented examples of directors and actresses are brought onto the stage. It is rare to find so much truth about "the boards that mean the world" as pointedly and humorously as in this play. Hübner wrote this piece to show how theater functions—or doesn't function. Deliciously cheeky theater-comedy acting at its finest!
