Hannah has a mum and a dad and strawberry plants on the balcony. Just like every year, she is looking forward to when the strawberries will be ripe. But this year everything is different because mum and dad have suddenly decided to separate.
Erdbeeren is the story of a perfectly normal separation, told from the child’s perspective. With hurt, angry, sad, playful and comical situations, everyday life is sliced up like a strawberry gateau. This text has been nominated for the National Ibsen Award 2022 in Norway. It will be shown for the first time in Germany in 2024, in a completely new show.
