About: The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents

When Dora's parents release her from her tranquilisers, they're not prepared for her potent sexual awakening. Discover one of Switzerland's most wilful and stimulating playwrights.

“A superb central performance by Cath Whitefield reveals an unappealing soul beneath or springing from Dora’s damaged mind.”


“Cracknell’s opening production makes a dashing statement, combining movement and text to considerable effect"


“This knotty piece, at once brutal and clinical, is the first under the Gate’s new duo of artistic directors, Carrie Cracknell and Natalie Abrahami. Brave, unsettling and given an inventive, highly physical production by Cracknell, it makes a promising star to the pair’s regime.”

“Cath Whitefield is absorbing as Dora, with Éva Magyar an elegant, febrile mother and Francis Lee disturbingly creepy as the salesman. They are trapped mercilessly in the glass confines of Bärfuss’s Petri dish of a play; wriggling, miserable, horribly compelling.”
