A shopping mall is the setting of this dark and bizarre musical starring animals. At the Hotel Stay Long, the call centre, the fast food restaurant and the supermarket, guests and employees bemoan their existential fears, their loneliness, the empty promises of consumerism and the time wasted on them. If only the burden was taken from their shoulders!

Duscha Kistler
