Icarus and Francis could not be more different: Icarus is cynical, emphatically nonchalant and, above all, keen on girls. Francis, on the other hand, is level-headed, smart, and rather more interested in books. And yet the two are pretty much best friends. A hospital visit tends to bind people together – Icarus is paraplegic and Francis has multiple sclerosis. And so, the friends make the best of their stay in rehab: they establish the coolest 12sqm flat-share, talk about girls, exchange annoying therapy talks and have parties. But then Icarus meets Jasmin and falls in love with her. Icarus, the big talker, profoundly struggles to handle this hitherto unknown feeling. And when Francis, who has always been there for him in word and deed, is suddenly discharged early from the hospital, it comes to a breakup with his best friend.
In his two-person play, Sergej Gößner tells the story of two lovable outsiders, their friendship, growing up, and the obstacles that have to be overcome in the process with a lot of humour and sensitivity. Bastian Heidenreich, a member of the drama company since 2011, directs Gößner's successful play, which was awarded the JugendStückePreis of the Heidelberg Stückemarkt in 2018.
