Everyone can see their own grayness

Theater texts

The staunch feminist Cassie found her new roommate Rose through the internet. Mark and his roommate Tim went to university together. And although the four Londoners have nothing in common, their paths cross in a way that borders on Providence.

With her own grayness, Penelope Skinner paints a picture of city dwellers who do not need a clash of nationalities in order to be multicultural. In addition, she uses her figures to show that every person has more than one face, that their external attitude does not have to reflect their inner being and that every person can surprise you if you only allow it.

However, with her concise and erratic associative language, sometimes freed of punctuation marks, Skinner also makes it clear: These people don't always know what they want, and when they do, it is sometimes too late.

Penelope Skinner raises the question of how different people have to be in order not to still want the same thing, and what power belief in something can bring about: whether it is total equality between the sexes, belief in oneself and one's masculinity , the belief in fate and perfect happiness through sheer conviction - or just the belief that you don't have to lose a loved one after your death as long as you carry your ashes around with you in a china cat.
