Summary/Abstract: Thomas Irmer outlines the specifics and the plot of the latest epic drama by Peter Handke, Die Unschuldigen, ich und die Unbekannte am Rand der Landstrasse. Ein Schauspiel in vier Jahreszeiten (Innocent, Myself and a Stranger at the Edge of an Outlying Road: A Play for the Four Seasons), to juxtapose the author’s intention with the world premiere of the play, directed by Claus Peymann (Berliner Ensemble in Berlin and Burgtheater in Vienna, premiere: 27.02.2016). The critic suggests that, despite the lucid construction, for many reasons the drama is a major challenge for the theater. He proves that many of Peymann’s tactics work against the staging.
