Push Up

By Roland Schimmelpfennig Translated by Maja Zade

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A savage satire on the rapacious nature of office lives and lusts - the British debut from a writer whose work has been seen in prestigious theatres all over Germany.

Everyone wants to get to the executive suite. Everyone wants the Delhi job. Everyone wants sex, everyone wants love. So, they push for it.

Roland Schimmelpfennig's play Push Up was first performed at the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz, Berlin, in November 2001. It was premiered in this English translation by Maja Zade at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in February 2002.

Press Quotes

'An attack on corporate life enacted in a sequence of cunning dialogues... formally elegant and crisply expressed'

Observer
