'GRETCHEN 89 FF' is a comedic play written by Lutz Hübner, in which he takes an ironic look at the world of theater. In each of the ten scenes, the most diverse characters of a theater rehearse the "box scene" from Goethe's Faust I, Reclam booklet, page 89, ff.
Clichés always arise where truth also lies, and so all neuroses, quirks, sensitivities, talented and less talented specimens are brought onto the stage by directors and actors.In [THE] GRETCHEN 89FF adds a certain seriousness to this segmentation of theater by adopting a feminist, system-critical perspective for the plot. The artist's own texts, which point out the extent to which women are disadvantaged in cultural institutions, are added to the original work and juxtaposed with the original in abstract dream sequences.

Pressestimmen

"In "Die Gretchen 89ff" zeigen die von Tara Meister betexteten Zwischensequenzen keine Pausen-Püppchen, sondern machen klar, dass die Zukunft der Frauen am Theater nicht nur rosig, sondern sogar ultraviolett aussieht. Es gibt in der Debatte über Gleichberechtigung und Frauenquote kein Schwarz und Weiß. Dafür eine ultraviolette Position, für die die jungen weiblichen Theaterschaffenden bereit sind zu kämpfen" - Kulturwoche
