You can watch a free live stream of the event on Youtube, 20 May, 19–20.

Do you know who you are? Does communication feel awkward? Do you hear voices? Do you look at the oncoming person in the eyes in the hope of deeper contact? Have you shouted into the darkness? Do you wander alone? Does your mind sometimes make you behave inappropriately? Would you like to hold an unknown person by the hand?

If you answered yes, order a Mayday musical theater work for your home! The collaboration of two writers, two directors, four composers, eight actors and six musicians show will provide the answer to your problems.

Mayday is an emergency cry for the encounter.
