A house is for sale. It is situated in idyllic greenery, freshly renovated and tastefully furnished. Potential buyers come along one after another and are shown round by the agent and the owner who recently inherited the house from her parents. 


Rising sea levels, forests dying and even the two world wars were supposedly predicted by the woodland prophet Mühlhiasl, who apparently lived near Straubing during the 16th century and went down in legends of the Bavarian forest as a local Nostradamus. The dramatist, filmmaker and poet Herbert Achternbusch makes use of this legend to write about a society that is determined to preserve prosperity by any means necessary: the entire village lives off the local manufacturers’ fame for making ruby glass – however the master glassmaker who just passed away took the recipe to the grave with him. The cowherd Hias, who is hastily summoned for help, confirms the clairvoyant faculties attributed to him by arriving before he has even been called for. Spurred on by his gloomy forecasts on one hand and the tyrannical glassworks owner Goldfinger on the other, the entire village ends up in turmoil and is soon prepared to sacrifice the peace of its soul for wealth.

From 21 October to 7 November 2021 theatre projects will be presented throughout Germany under the label «Kein Schlussstrich!» (“Do not draw the line!”) concerning the National Socialist Underground (NSU) - because even ten years after it unmasked itself, the underlying reasons behind the NSU continue to remain unclear. The play «Judgements», which premiered on 10 April 2014 in the Marstall and which was the first play in a German-speaking country to tell the story from the perspective of the loved ones the murder victims left behind, will therefore be restaged by Christine Umpfenbach with a new cast in the form of a re-enactment and be continued up to the present day.
