a Road Play by Günther Grosser & Priscilla Be

SHOW-Renate+FredFred is dead but he´s not done talking. Anna is fed up with her stinky life in the East. Jens and Andreas are on the look-out for unsuspecting capitalist slobs. Edna is in the bathroom without a clue. The Royal Insults are on their way to fame without a map.

Dead Fred tells the story of a day in the lives of nine people on the `Transitstrecke´ – the transit road – through East Germany – a day they will never forget.

A grotesque comedy for those who´ve been there – and for those who´ve only heard about it. LA Crash meets Thelma without Louise in Michendorf. Fear and Loathing on the Transitstrecke – and the puzzling place afterwards.
