Irreparabel

Play by Sergej Gößner

Icarus and Francis could not be more different: Icarus is cynical, emphatically debonair and, above all, keen on girls. Francis, on the other hand, is level-headed, smart and has more of a penchant for books. And yet the two are pretty much best friends. A visit to the clinic brings them closer together. Icarus is a paraplegic and Francis has multiple sclerosis. But the two make the most of their stay in rehab: they talk about the annoying therapy sessions, talk about girls and have parties - until Icarus falls in love and can't handle this new feeling at all. And when Francis, who has always stood by his side, is suddenly released early from the clinic, it comes to a break with his best friend.

With a lot of humor and sensitivity, Sergej Gößner tells in his two-person play about two lovable outsiders, their friendship as well as about growing up and the obstacles that have to be overcome in the process. Bastian Heidenreich, a member of the Schauspielensemble since 2011, staged Gößner's successful play, which was awarded the JugendStückePreis of the Heidelberg Stückemarkt in 2018, for the studio stage.

 

Cooperation between the DNT Weimar and the Erfurt Theatre.

 

ℹ️ Note: Rowohlt-Verlag, together with the author Sergej Gößner, has decided to rename his play »Mongos« to »Irreparabel«. We are complying with this change of title.

»Sergej Gößner stellte seinem drei Jahre alten Erfolgsstück einen Satz von Stephen Hawking voran: ›Das Leben wäre tragisch, wenn es nicht lustig wäre.‹ Bastian Heidenreich hält sich daran und lässt seine Inszenierung auf Messers Schneide balancieren. Falls sie kippt, dann stets ins Leichte, Heitere, in Aktion. Das ist erkennbar die Planposition Jugendtheater, angerichtet mit dem Vorsatz, niemals zu langweilen.
[…] Torp ist darin impulsives Kraftzentrum, Horn liefert Impulse – und Gedanken. […] Das ist ideal besetzt, ergänzt sich großartig. […] Und beide sorgen dafür, dass der Abend Luft kriegt. Sie halten ihn in der Schwebe.«
(Michael Helbing, Thüringer Allgemeine)
