China Plate & Staatstheater Mainz present STATUS. An award-winning play by Chris Thorpe and Rachel Chavkin.
FRINGE FIRST WINNER 2018
We all have a nationality.
Or almost all of us.
STATUS is a show about someone who doesn’t want his any more. About running away from the national story you’re given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.
A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way.
