Play title: Leitgeb
Graz is the second largest city in Austria and home to a well-known theater, Schauspielhaus Graz. Although situated on the edge of Austria at the southeastern corner of German-speaking Europe, in many ways the city lies right in the heart of the continent. The Schauspielhaus itself produces everything from classical plays, musicals, and light comedies to more contemporary forms like site-specific work and documentary theater. Performances take place in three venues within the building and in locations throughout the city. The Schauspielhaus is set up as a repertory theater with around 300 performances per year, running over several themed seasons. Up to 25 main productions are featured at the Schauspielhaus every season; some 75,000 visitors attend performances annually.
Play Synopsis: A young man has set up a garage sale to get rid of some extra things, including a t-shirt with identification information that his grandfather used to wear in case he got lost. A woman at the sale faces a dilemma when she wants to buy the shirt.
