A Production Template

First Premiered

This Production premiered on 8 November 2018 at the Käfigturm in Bern.


Seven flatmates: A doe-eyed actress, a control-freak, a lazy couch-potato, a serious lawyer-to-be, an honest friend, a down-to-earth store manager and a hopeless spaghetti cook face rising tensions, as they are running short on money. They decide to rent out a spare room to Snow, who is trying to escape her past and get away from her stepmother‘s overpowering presence.

Above the Water is a modern reinterpretation of the Snow White fairy tale, half stage play, half radio play, replete with banter, squabbles and the minutiae of daily life from cooking spaghetti, to eating crisps, to making good coffee.
