Top Dogs - Queensland Theatre Company

by Urs Widmer - Translated by Patricia Benecke and Patrick Driver


This is a really unusual, experimental play written in 1996, which takes a simple scenario and deconstructs it with tremendous dramatic impact. Swiss playwright Urs Widmer looks at five top executives who have lost their jobs and shows their mental journeys to acceptance of new, much-diminished roles in life.
The structure, with many rather disjointed short scenes, under Patricia Benecke's clinical direction is always unpredictable. There is comedy, for example when a husband and wife swap roles, apocalyptic vision and six monologues delivered simultaneously that revolve around the theatre, one consisting of nothing more than beautifully expressed numbers.
