Claustrophobia

The radio fiction jury at work. (twb)
Emma has got a new job. Her boss, friendly and caring, tells her to make regular reports on what she does and how she feels. Soon Emma realizes that life at the company is strictly controlled. When she falls in love with a colleague and thus breaks a taboo, the nightmare begins.

The young British playwright Mike Bartlett takes a simple plot and develops it to the extreme. How much can a company expect from its employees? And how much are they willing to reveal? "Nachwehen" directed by Stephan Heilmann from Swiss SRF (soundtrack by Philipp Schaufelberger) is a chokingly claustrophobic piece about control turning into terror.
