Kornél Mundruczó / Proton Theater



Mousonturm Saal


A renowned psychiatric hospital in Budapest has been bought by an investor. The patients are turned out into the streets. In this play by Kornél Mundruczó, a group of dementia patients lives in the dilapidated clinic with their doctor and a nurse. They only have one visitor, who turns out to be the building’s new owner. He uses financial blackmail for the patients to be given a clean bill of health. To the sounds of Johann Strauss’ “Wiener Blut”, Mundruczó’s garish, intelligent farce talks about Hungary and our society, where easy money makes us forget our past as well as our morals.
