Platz Mangel


A luxurious rest home linked to the outside world by a funicular. Sounds idyllic? But only until you learn it’s the setting for the latest satirical creation by Swiss playwright  Christoph Marthaler. Indeed this mountain paradise is the antechamber of hell, whose patients – preparing to return to their cushy social lives –  face a living death.
