the stalls had been removed and replaced by a yellow S-shape stage. The audience ist seated alongsite it on bar stools. On the normal stage site and opposite there are small spaces on the first level with curtains to open for scenes. The location of the scenes is displayed by video projections against the walls.

the lives of three sisters and their families are shown over a generation from 1968 until 2025. Their scientist father feared the worst for the future of menkind and refused to welcome his children. While one daughter struggles as a politian with her former ideology, her out of work husband struggles to come to term with is life. Another sister is pregnant and refuses to accept her daughter to be while her husband seeks advise from his father-in-law in far Scotland. the third sister is a dancer and living a life of drugs and tries to sabotage her sister´s politian life.
It all escalates in the suizid of the pregnant sister on Waterloo brigde and a kind of dreamworld and myths where all pain has gone ...

The scenes are interspersed with song and dance routines of mothers with prams, pesdestrians etc.
