An eerie voice echoes in a palace: "It's me! The real one, me!" The court community, half murder pit, half kindergarten, can't believe their eyes and ears: outside, a muddy, barely intelligible figure rumbles against the gate, claims to be the right one and demands entry. Everyone in the palace is thinking of the queen's son, who once went out to find just that: the right one ...
ERBSE is a witty and wicked take on H.C. Andersen's fairy tale The Princess and the Pea. Teuwissen shakes up the well-known original. In Andersen's tale, the queen hides a pea under many, many mattresses in order to find out whether the stranger is a sensitive princess. In this play, the pea becomes an instrument of unmasking: the palace is put to the test and the stranger acts, affects and directs in the game for dignity and power.
The Schalktheater, directed by Mélanie Huber, premieres ERBSE and asks with mischievousness and subtlety about the vices and virtues that unite us despite all differences.
