Discussion with special guests following 'The Most Unsatisfied Town'

Since he arrived in Germany, Laurence has tried to do everything by the rules. He applied for asylum, waited patiently for his papers and found the kind of job no national would ever care to do. He’s found the formula for survival, or so he thinks, until one day his friend Rahim mysteriously disappears. After the performance Daniel Brunet invites to the discussion about racism, police violence and life in German cities.

The play is based on the true story of Oury Jalloh, who was killed in Dessau police custody in 2005, and the activists of the Initiative in Remembrance of Oury Jalloh, who spurred an international movement to bring his killers to justice.

About the piece

The Most Unsatisfied Town

Six additional performances of the world premiere production of a new play by Amy Evans, directed by Daniel Brunet. Since he arrived in Germany, Laurence has tried to do everything by the rules. He applied for asylum, waited patiently for his papers and found the kind of job no national would ever care to do. He is friendly to his neighbors, even the ones who tease his children in school, and cooperates with the police when they ask for his help. He’s found the formula for survival, or so he thinks, until one day his friend Rahim mysteriously disappears. When the body turns up charred beyond recognition, Laurence is thrust to the fore of a civil rights movement and is forced to take a closer look at the town he was so ready to call home.
