Author-investigator Max Messer is suffering from writer’s block. So the assignment to solve a case of kidnapping couldn’t come at a better time. But there is far more at stake. Because the missing woman is not only in a relationship with the boss of a powerful syndicate, but her name – nomen est omen – is Europa. Along with the character of Max Messer, the play sets out to find the traces of playwright Heiner Müller (1929 – 1995), who created a radio play under this pseudonym in 1961. Against the panorama of his dark diagnoses, this furious detective story explores what needs to happen if Europe is to have a future. Alexander Eisenach has been directing his own texts and those by other authors. In 2017, he received the Kurt-Hübner-Regiepreis for young directors.

“It is fun to follow these leaps of ideas and genres for 90 minutes – and to consider the future of Europe in the process.”

RBB Inforadio

“The dentist is the fang and the main suspect in a bold and truly very witty story, told in the manner of a crime noir.”
