The Heiber family lives in a world that’s rapidly crumbling, plagued by flawed and outdated social and political models. Meanwhile a group of aristocrats, led by Helmut Ronen, are creating the perfect city as the answer to all of society’s problems: RONENSBOURGH.
Ronensbourgh, also known as “How is it possible that we have ended up in Ronensbourgh?,” is a contemporary and highly experimental piece, written in a Heiner Müller’s style (No stage directions. No formatting. SOME CAPITAL LETTERS THAT SEEM RANDOM BUT THEY’RE NOT) by Beatriz Cabur. The play poses timely questions about identity, society and home—dislodging the very things our society holds as important.
