And Then/Of the Disappearance of the Father/Three Are We

Wolfram Höll

And Then/Of the Disappearance of the Father/Three Are We

»The child speaks, it narrates and counts the apartment blocks, the big stones on the playground, the floors and doorbells, and before you know it, you are caught in an arithmetic of loss, are saddened by the number, a three that always refers to a four that, unfortunately, does not exist, and the two suffers under the three, under the missing of one. The child counts and there is no counting rhyme that could undo the absence and retrieve what has been lost, because even a counting rhyme ends with the delineating ›out goes you‹. Rarely has a text moved me so sadly and cheered me up with its intelligent fragility,« writes the playwright Ewald Palmetshofer about Wolfram Höll’s multi-award winning debut And Then.
