»Here the grotesque, playing on deeper meanings, becomes easily consumable, made vital by the apparently effortless precision of the actors... Gila von Beh crosses worldly aspirations for justice with the thoughts and feelings of six people, who in our hypochondriac, disturbed-ego society are striving after a great slice of consumer pleasure, no matter what it costs. Lubricat goes head to head with the moral implictions, without losing the audience, and the result is a thoroughly entertaining piece of contemporary theatre« Tagesspiegel, 10. November 2001

»The quality of this production lies in the strangely helpless and melancholy light which it sheds on our utterly unmysterious and banal present.« FAZ 12.11.2001

»Running out is always at the same time, running in. Dürrenmatt said it and this evening demonstrated it. Full of conflicting paradoxes: as it should be.« zitty Nr. 24/2001 Download: tagesspiegel 10.10.2001
