Die Firma dankt
06.07.2018 - 22.07.2018

A contemporary German play garnering critical acclaim in Europe, China and Taiwan soon to land in Hong Kong
An office duel between a young executive and veteran staff

As with the reality of mergers and acquisitions, a company undergoes personnel changes with the arrival of a new director. Watching this unfold is a long-time manager, witnessing the dismissal of colleagues and wondering about his own future. When the young CEO takes charge, he challenges conventional wisdom, throwing down the gauntlet and adapting an entirely new management style negating years of experience and previous achievement to the point of ridding the company of its reason for being. In the face of new employees and ways of handling business, what should the veteran do? Will the company show any appreciation?

This German contemporary play delves into office politics as traditional enterprises adjust to the new economy, engendering
conflict between the old and new generations, with the old guard protecting its own terrain. Playwright Lutz Hübner was the winner of the 1998 Deutscher Jugendtheaterpreis, his darkly satirical works frequently presented at the Mülheimer Theatertage. Die Firma dankt was presented at HKRep Reader’s Theatre in 2015 and appeared on stage at the 2016 Taipei Arts Festival and Beijing receiving great acclaim!
