Aren’t hamsters cute? We can feed them, pet them and cheer them on to learn some tricks. There is a huge cage in the middle of the theatre. It contains three plushy hamsters who perform some great tricks. But what about the stern voice coming from backstage? Who can keep track of what’s going on and who is responsible? With this production, the company invites its audience to a play about power and responsibility.
