Responses to the Play
States of reality in a world transmitted by the media: what is true, what false, and who guarantees the correctness of such distinctions. Those themes are common knowledge, so why should't they at long last be presented by actors on stage? The plot which reality brought Bauersima's way is a real stroke of luck. The extreme situation presented here demands of the characters the highest possible degree of thoughtfulness and at the same time emotional complications. In concrete terms, when Julie and August have put up their tent they have no alternative but to talk about themselves and what they intend to do, no matter how painful and uncool that may be. (...) A highly moral play about two likeable young people, a play that invites reflection and simultaneously entertains with unexpected developments.
Bauersima (...) has caught the feelings of the web generation with precision. Almost like a Beckett for today, artful and complex, simple and humorous.
