Benjamin Lauterbach’s The Chinese (Der Chinese)

Zeitgeist DC: Contemporary Literature

Staged Reading

Benjamin Lauterbach

Germany in the distant future: Environmental problems are a thing of the past, diseases have been eradicated, and educational crises have been solved. Germany is green and sustainable now, an ecological paradise with a satisfied population. When China sends its representative Mr. Ting to Germany to learn from them, it is a cultural shock for both sides when he pulls out his plastic toys, LED lights, and sleeping pills. The harmony is about to be shattered.

Benjamin Lauterbach (b. 1975) is a German author, editor, and TV journalist whose play The Chinese was invited to the Berliner Stückemarkt 2011.

Followed by a reception with actors of Scena Theatre.

Organized by Scena Theatre as part of the Zeitgeist DC series.
