This play comes as a theatre collaboration between Qendra Multimedia from Prishtina, “Adriana” Theatre in Ferizaj and “Pfalzbaubühnen” Theatre in Ludwigshafen.

The director of the play Schletter, claims: “We wanted to find a universal topic that portrays the similarities more than the differences in a globalized world.
